“America's floating naval history”
USS Turner Joy (DD 951) plays host to the annual CPO Legacy Academy in which Chief Petty Officer Selects live aboard this Forrest Sherman Class Destroyer.
This was a great trip making stop. We both have family members that served in the Navy and having the opportunity board and walk a naval destroyer.
You buy your tickets in the gift shop. The gift shop is very nice and well stocked with multiple items that are naval and otherwise. The people are very friendly.
The destroyer was 90% open to the public. It was wonderful to walk in and through the ship. There was soooo much to see and read. It's amazing to see how the sailors lived during that time frame. This is definitely a must see that will be of historic value and fun for ages 5 and up.
There are lots of port doors to go through so watch your head and feet. the ladders are steep and you want to be careful. You want to explore the full ship, so be prepared with good shoes that are skid resistant and clothes that you can easily maneuver and can't see up.
