A beautiful museum and a great place to host an event. My daughter held her wedding and reception there and it turned out beautifully. The museum staff worked in concert with the wedding coordinator and there were no worries the entire evening. The window over looking the lake was the perfect backdrop for the vows and offered plenty of seating for guests. The grounds were, of course an excellent place to take pictures. The wedding guests enjoyed being in the gallery and there was plenty of room for dancing.

Managed to go here for free with our Zoo membership! And the place was so big we had to make it a two day trip. Workers are friendly. My son loved the pirate ship! Parking was a breeze as well even with the marathon going on. Would definitely visit again.

Fantastic museum! Great exhibit of the Monitor and Virginia as well as more contemporary marine history. Admission is only a dollar during the summer after Memorial Day. Plan to spend a whole afternoon. We easily spent over 4-5 hours here seeing all the exhibits.

We walked the whole trail, five miles and nineteen bridges. Beautiful place for all ages to enjoy. Take a short walk or enjoy it all. There are plenty of markers to tell you where you are on the trail. If you love taking pictures of nature your bound to find some great shots here.

The summer price is currently $1 which is an incredible deal, it is worth the full $20. My friend and I went and took the time to read everything. Over the course of 3 hours doing that we only saw about 1/3 of the museum. There is a lot of very good information involved here, an excellent place to go.
