Intesting Naval historical museum. Lots of stuff to see in a small space. Be sure to go across the street to see the seaplane. Staff were very nice. Gentleman that gave me the "outside" tour was very nice and informative. Be sure to make a donation! It's a worthy cause that honors our well-deserving service members.
It is as it is described. Maritime patrol aviation was important during previous wars and is still important today. Museum is small but informational. There is a flight simulator and a small theater. Well worth the July pricing of 5 dollars.
