We thoroughly enjoyed our walkthrough of this ship. It is huge, but really fun to get to see the inside of something so historic.

What a privilege to be able to explore this Battleship. The guides dotted around the ship are very knowledgeable. You have to be able to climb ladders and be relatively fit to get into all the areas of this battleship.

5 PM is the latest time that you can start your tour. Most guests complete the Fire Power Tour in 90 minutes, so most guests finish their tour by 6:30.
