  • Awesome to see if you're a history buff/nerd. Lots of walking but well worth it to see where history happened on such a massive ship

  • Must see. I wasn’t surprised seeing the rating on here. This tour puts the awe in awesome. We all loved it. Wanted to go back but had to get on the Fort Sumter tour which is another must see.

  • We spent the better part of 4 hours exploring on the self-guided tours. My father-in-law served two tours on Yorktown in Vietnam and it was a real treat to get to see so much of it (and send him some photos of great memories). An absolute treat and we’d love to come back and spend more time!
  • Fantastic Museum. I go through museums quickly but this is definitely a multi hour visit (3+). May have to come back a second time to see everything. Huge exhibits and what a cool resting spot for these retired war machines. You can also take a fort Sumter cruise from here and they have helicopter tours nearby. You can really have a full day. $5 parking but you are supporting the museum which has a lot of upkeep. Come early in the day if you want to get a guided tour of the ships.
