Kids enjoyed climbing in and out of ships, imagining what it must have been like to be stationed on one of these ships. Definitely made us appreciate sacrifices of our military men and women. Lots of climbing steps and ladders, narrow hallways, low ceilings, and uneven floors, so not really little kid or stroller-friendly. Can spend a couple hours here.

We enjoyed exploring all the historic military ships, equipment and the Vietnam Experience. We also took the Ferry to Fort Sumter from the shared parking lot ($5 All day parking.)

A couple tips: If taking the Ft. Sumter Ferry, Book online before. You will get printable vouchers for $5 off each ticket into Patriots Point. Also, there is a large elevator on the USS NORFOLK for wheelchairs and strollers although side-by-side strollers will be too wide inside the ships and no room for strollers in the Submarine, the USS Clamagore. An ergo-style baby carrier would be ideal though.

With all the exhibits to climb and explore here, your kids will be thoroughly worn out so be prepared to make it the only thing that day, especially with smaller children and especially when visiting during the summer. We were there for about 5 hours in July and the kids (7,4,and1)were ready for only the hotel pool by the end of the day. The hands-on experience of all the ships and the Vietnam Experience are not to be missed. The Vietnam Veteran volunteer at the Vietnam Experience had a wealth of first-person knowledge and we were honored he took the time to talk with us towards the end of our visit.
