The battleship is great for children of all ages. Enjoy the history while still having a fun experience. Every child needs to go. Pack your lunch and have a great picnic in the field. It isn't very pricey for a fun family day. When your done, don't forget to stop by the restaurants on the causeway. If you want quality... More

The first thing that strikes you as you enter the battleship grounds is that huge grey battleship that towers over you. I loved the display of the flights, the helicopters and the tanks. The sad part was that we got in right when they were closing up so we couldn't get on to the battleship. But we will be back.... More

I have passed by this attraction a number of times throughout the years and never really had a chance to stop, but in this last visit I finally was able too and I must say, it is well worth the price of addmision. And depending on how much time you have, you certainly could spend the day lost within the... More

Great history experience. Excellent access to a WWII/Korean War Battleship. The air craft hanger is excellent as well. The submarine was over the top - an amazing lesson on what the living conditions would be like on a sub. Overall great attraction - we'll go back and spend more time.

It's just incredible the size of this battleship, all the rooms where the people was living for months, and even years. The submarine and the airplanes are also something you will love to see. Great experience!!

Located at Battleship Memorial Park along with the USS Drum and a hangar full of military aircraft, the Alabama is in excellent condition. It is the 2nd most visited naval vessel memorial in the country(behind the Arizona Memorial in Pearl Harbor). Its certainly an experience everyone should have once.
