I intended to come back to this museum when I didnt have kids in tow because there is much to learn here. So today I was able to -- with two older women friends. I would have given the museum 4 or maybe 5 instead of 3 stars except for the fact that my guest said to me, "Virtually nothing about women in the Portsmouth history, as if women never lived here! Just lots of war, war, war." This is true. Didnt women have any role in Portsmouth? Of course they couldnt work on the light ship (which is very educational and I take all my out of town visitors here). But I hope the rulers of the museum finds a way to include an exhibit on the women of Portsmouth, maybe nameless but they kept the place going when you really think about it.
Crazy to see the living condition back then arent much different than what they are today on CG ships.
Absolutely wonderful historic site! I suggest everyone should go!
