Walked through for a tour with my husband and my parents. While we there, we got a small bonus! On Fridays they have a guest speaker. This Friday a gentleman from a local tattoo shop came and spoke on 19th century tattoos and the history. It was pretty neat! We had tea and scones. Both are available in the gift shop and are quite tasty! The house is gorgeous and well taken care of. The older woman that gave us a tour was very knowledgeable about the home and it's past owners. Neat place!

This was well worth the $15 to get in. It was a great place to bring the family and just your friends. They touch all ages and use plain language to explain things of what everything is. Has lots of kid interactive sections. Has lots of models and pictures. The battleship was amazing to walk the deck and and go inside. The inside was amazing to walk through with small note explaining who worked there or lived there. Made you really understand how they lived in the ship.

The Memorial library has a vast expanse of resources and offered a unique perspective on the Pacific Theater of World War II. Also, its curator Mr. James Zobel was remarkably helpful in pointing me in the desired direction given my research interest in the Allied Intelligence Bureau. Many thanks!
