This tour is self-guided but there are people around to answer questions. It's great to see the work that is going on to preserve this ship. It's hard to imagine the conditions our young men endured to protect and serve our nation while the USS Kidd was active. The museum is well-done. The former military are respected and honored here.

The boat tour is really nice. The tour is self guided, and it is hard to imagine having that many people on the boat working to protect our nation. Make sure you take time to look at the rest of the museum. There is a lot to see an it has a lot of information on people from all of... More

Very interesting visit but very hot the day we visited. It is not handicap accessible, lots of steep stairs to climb.

My husband really enjoyed this stop. It was semi interesting to me and luckily didn't take long. We'll worth the stop for him and he'll be more likely to make stops that will primarily interest me.

I took my sons here, both teenagers. I was very proud they were very respectful and curious about the ship. They even thanked the volunteer vets that watch the ship. I am glad we decided to tour the ship, I had no idea what one was like before, A life experience everyone should have.

Great experience walking through the ship and seeing how tight of quarters they really lived in. Took my nephew, who enjoyed it. While it is hot outside, there was an AC inside that made it more comfortable. In addition to the USS Kidd, there was a Veteran Museum with lots of really cool models of ships and battlegrounds -- very... More

Its not a battleship but still very interesting since some of the guides actually served on the Kidd and its well preserved. The boat and the museum together are a good value for the kids. But the absolute best is they let you spend the night on the ship my son thought that was great and you really get an... More
