  • Such an awesome place, well worth the price. We were here almost four hours and probably only saw half of the stuff here. Be prepared, the self guided tours on the ship have lots of stairs. Very friendly staff to answer any questions you may have. A highly recommended stop while in Charleston!
  • Always wanted to go, glad I got the chance. It's an amazing experience and makes you appreciate our servicemen even more. I loved the medal of honor museum. Learned a lot about the history of the medals. Everyone should visit at some point and time. Staff was very friendly
  • Visiting the Yorktown was very interesting. Many aircraft of various types are present on the flight deck and the hangar deck. Five possible tours are available on the carrier. Exhibits of various types are located on the hangar deck. I did not have time to visit the other ships or the Vietnam Experience. One could easily spend whole day there.
  • Very interesting but give yourself at least 4 hours to really see it all. My favorite part was seeing the submarine. Its difficult to navigate through the small openings but its incredible to see. The volunteer working at the vietnam experience was an incredible resource. Having served himself and dedicating so much to modeling, he had a great deal of information to share.
  • It is a great place to go if you like history, want to see what it is really like aboard a battleship, to ride on a boat or helicopter, and more. The boat ride is great! The route they take is full of historical landmarks that are explained by a recording played during the ride. I would go here again.
