We had such a great time going to the Festival of Sail at the museum. It was our first time at the museum & found it to be very interesting & cool. Aside from the additional ships that were there for the festival, they have 2 submarines that you can go in & explore! That was really cool! They have a beautiful ferry boat (Berkley) that has been restored. It has the museum store & displays downstairs as well as a bar/restrooms/seating upstairs. It's really cool looking upstairs... We almost didn't go up... So glad we did!
They also had the Star of India, which was very cool to see!
We enjoyed touring several ships at the Maritime Museum, including The Star of India and some used in movies. Some of the exhibits were closed for renovations, but there were enough open for tours that we definitel got our money's worth.

I love this museum and highly recommend you check it out. It is located next to the Star of India right downtown on the water.

THE FESTIVAL OF SAIL: It's one year away, but the tall ships will be returning to San Diego August 20 - 24, 2008. This may be a good time to become a member and sign-up to help them with this wonderful event.
