Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum Review

Climb aboard the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier—which contains the Congressional Medal of Honor Museum—as well as the submarine USS Clamagore and the destroyer USS Laffey. A life-size replica of a Vietnam support base camp showcases naval air and watercraft used in the military action.

    Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum Review

    Galley is operational on the Yorktown and well worth the money for lunch. If you have time, the different self-guided tours of the ship are all worth seeing. Very nicely done; one gets to experience first hand life on a carrier. Docents are wonderful, some having first-hand experience of their descriptions and explanations. Excellent place to discover history!
