A must see experience in San Francisco. The story of the ship and simply being on this vessel is an incredible experience.

See everything. Great for anyone interested in history.
Fascinating history. If you go (totally worth the $20) be sure to watch the movie in the museum. So thankful for all the brave men who served on her to deliver supplies and soldiers during WWII.
