For those who decide once onboard that a tour is not for them, there are displays on the Admissions Deck, including an impressive array of model ships, plus a library and a theatre showing a slideshow of highlights of the tours and a documentary telling the story of the repatriation of the ship, as well as a Gift Shop offering books and other souvenirs of the ship.
Visitors are not permitted to bring pets onto the ship or the adjacent parking pad. Pets are permitted, on a leash, with an Adult attendant, on the remainder our grounds, while others in the same visitor group visit the ship. There are three park-like (grassed and treed) areas with picnic benches suitable for this purpose. We do not provide water, drinking bowls, or waste containers: please cleanup after your pet.
