The museum is great, I could wonder around in there for hours. We really enjoyed the self tour on the ship. Nephew was all over the place and i feel he learns a lot by visiting this great place. We visit 2 or 3 times a year absolutely love this place

My daughter actually got to spend the night on the ship as part of a camp out with her Girl Scout Troop. It was very awesome for the girls. I thought is was excellent that the girls were given this opportunity. Wonderful place to take kids to give them a bit of historical experience.

This is a must see, and for all ages because the USS Kidd is berthed right on the flowing Mississippi River and you get to climb all over the ship. The ship is manned by volunteers from the original crew, even, who are happy to share stories if you would like to hear them. The lower bunk areas also have... More

A good day with my son. Everyone was very nice and helpful. The area was safe to walk around for my five year old.

A trip back in history on the WWII destroyer was excellent. They also have a wonderful museum. The 1st Sunday of every month is free so we lucked out there.

This was well worth the money. $8 pp for uss kidd and museum. We showed up at 9am when it opened and basically had the ship to ourselves. Amazing the amount of restoration that had to occur. You can even spend the night if you want. Very educational and really cool. About 20 minutes from Denham Springs KOA.

Old ships are always great to explore. This one may not be on a grand display, but she did her time honorary and deserves the utmost respect. It was an honor to be welcomed on this ship and I do hope that many many more tourists visit her in order to keep up with the grounds/repair (financially). Very historical and... More

I was in BR for work and got done a little early so figured I would take a ride downtown. First thing I liked was the free parking right outside the Museum for visitors only. From there walk into the gift shop and purchase your ticket. Walk to the ship which you need to board from the second floo however... More
