Visitor Arunav Baruah said even with the changes, he was still able to enjoy his experience with his friends.

“We were just imagining ourselves like the sailors back in the day, and we were goofing off a bit, but we were kind of like trying to put ourselves in their shoes. That was the best part,” Baruah said.

Starting Wednesday, hours will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
