Patriot's Point Naval and Maritime Museum 9/11/2006

On a visit to Charleston, SC in May my husband and I went to Patriot's Point Naval and Maritime Museum. It was something he had been wanting to do since our first visit 2 years ago. It was much more interesting than I expected, and he loved it. My husband enjoyed the self-guided tour through the aircraft carrier, looking at the planes and was amazed at the size of the flight deck. It was very humbling to see the Congressional Medal of Honor Museum that is part of the larger museum. The Vietnam era camp was really interesting to us because we remember that war. There is a lot of walking involved, many sets of stairs. This wasn't a problem for us, but might be for some. This is not my thing...but, I really did enjoy it. more

Interesting historical tour 10/8/2005

Patriot's Point is located at the foot of the Old Cooper River Bridges and looks out over the Cooper River towards downtown Charleston. It houses several decommissioned naval ships, including its most famous resident, the USS Yorktown. This is a must-see for anyone interested in Naval history, Military History, or just US History in general. You can take tours of the ships and see just what cramped living is provided on a ship that is so massive. I do not believe that the Yorktown is wheelchair friendly, as one must step up and over the portholes that serve as doors. more

Four Ships! Twenty Five Aircraft! All in One Place 9/30/2005

This is the perfect place to take your dad, or your daughter's father-in-law when you're tired of them sitting around your pad complaining about the smell of incense and the tapestries on your wall. It's wall-to-wall military madness. See! the USS Yorktown! VIEW! Stuff you're not interested in if you're not a military buff. I give this 5 stars because everyone that goes here gushes over it. I grew up in the Navy and have seen my share of ships and planes and all that hoo-haa. However, it's a decent place and I'm not going to give it low marks because I don't enjoy it. There's always kids there and families so I guess that's a good thing. Watch out when you're on the Yorktown, though. Make sure to Step UP through the doors at the same time you DUCK DOWN. Ship doors are tiny. Six-footers, beware!!! more

an awesome Naval ship museum 9/11/2005

Patriots Point is a wonderful Naval Museum on the water in the Harbor. It actually is in Mt. Pleasant, SC but is just across the bridge from Charleston. If you were on the Charleston side of the Harbor, you can easily see it across the water. This is the big #10 ship that actually was a Naval ship many, many years ago. You can tour almost the entire ship. There are so many things to see there including one of the capsules the astronauts used on a space trip that the ship picked up in the waters after they broke back through the earth's atmopshere. The only con that I can think of is that it is expensive. However, they have special events throughout the year where it can be more affordable. It is worth the admission price but is expensive. A lot of the ship cannot be accessible by wheelchair, etc. so if that is an issue for you, you might want to skip this site. The tour takes a LOT of climbing. Not for the smallest kids, too as the steps are quite step. more
