Battleship cove has something for everyone, it is historic, an engaging historical lesson for kids, no need to keep yelling "don't touch that" to the kids.

If you like history or naval things, this is a great stop. There are several types of boats to tour including a Russian/East German vessel. This is a good chance to see several classes of ships in one location.
