What people are saying:

Visited in September 2018. Museum was nice but I came here for Olympia, USA. I first visited the ship in 1976 and it was nice to see it again. The well preserved example of the Navy living around 1900. The ship is still beautiful and the exhibits on board are very informative. If you like submarines, the USS Becuna is good.

    Maybe better for children

    Paid $10 each, no cafe, couldn’t get the vending machine to take our money or accept our bank card to buy water, and not overly impressed with the museum. Staff seemed disinterested and we felt that e...

    Three really nice ships (one is a submarine) in a riverside park

    This is a very nice area just south of the Hilton Hotel. The park setting has food booths, ships, water views, sitting areas and decent landscaping for an urban park. The highpoint is the collec...

    Okay

    The museum was okay for the amount of space they had to work with, but the cruiser and submarine were both impressive. Our recommendation would be to tour the vessels.
