Don't pass up the chance to read about the ship's history and see the amazing war monuments around the park. $4 for parking.

It looks like they are/have been in the process of changing some of the ship tour hours so it was a little off sometimes, but it's a lot of fun! Definitely plan to spend no less than 2 hours exploring the ship, air and submarine exhibits. We got there at 11 am and stayed until 2:30 pm.

The park is heavily staffed by Veterans. It was inspiring and amazing listen to their firsthand accounts of their time in service. We packed a picnic and let the kids stretch their legs.

They close at 6 pm, but they sell the last admission ticket at 5 pm. So if you want to go aboard the ship, get there before 5 pm. There are other things to look -- we arrived at 5:15 and stayed until they closed at 6 pm. Lots of planes, tanks, and memorials. Pretty amazing place! Next time will plan to get there early so we can go on the ship! It was massive!
