interesting to visit and play around for a few hours, but if you are not a little kid, you will hit your head a lot..

Great ship and great attraction in downtown Baton Rouge, a must stop if you're there! Very easy to get to, and a great piece of history!

The USS kind is located in the heart of downtown Baton Rouge and well worth the visit. It is near the Lousiiana Memorial Plaza and you can even do a camp over on board (have to call and make the reservations). Walking the decks, making your way through the ships interior, studying the guns is fun and interesting.

My husband and I visited a couple years ago, and decided to bring our three boys while on vacation this year. We enjoyed the second as much as the first and the boys thought it was amazing! !

Well preserved destroyer with good access, nicely presented in original shape. Of at least equal vale is the fine museum including MANY, MANY ship models and period paraphernalia. Low cost and reasonably quick to tour.

We had a really good time. Most of the ship is open to view and to wander through. The artifacts inside are great and it amazed me to read the history that is from Baton Rouge. I would visit again

The USA Kidd is a ship to see. The kids will enjoy walking along the hallways. It gives a very good idea of size, space, and technology available for those who lived on the steal gray ship in days gone pass.

Very interesting!! It's like going back in time! They give you a map and everything is numbered. It is very very eye-opening how many people can fit on this ship and how they lived there lives. Veterans who lived it are there if you have questions. We almost skipped this and I am so glad we did not! I don't... More

It is a great place to visit for the kids. They love the history behind it and learn to appreciate space and what other people have done for this country. Great place to visit any time and also for birthday parties.
