Cool ship.

It's always interesting to roam aboard a piece of history. The ship is very accessible - you get to see most of it.

anything less than a superior rating like you see below is sad. This is a great exhibit. The museum is even more wonderful. This is HISTORY! And the displays and the ship is all of that and a bag of chips. Thank you to the curators and volunteers who keep this must em and ship up.

My wife, 6 year old, and 2 year old each enjoyed their visit. There were few other visitors this day. Therefore, we asked the man standing at the front of the ship taking tickets for an overview. He provided a great overview of the history. We had ample access to the entire ship. It was interesting to read the overviews... More

I enjoyed the visit. The ship is in good condition, just needed some cleaning. I know there's only so much they can do, but the webs were a bit much. The guy who took the ticket gave me a little knowledge about the ship and a tidbit about a veteran. If I were a little bigger, I would not have... More

The USS Kidd is a wonderful place to take children. There is history and there is the Mississippi River to enjoy. The museum is furnishes good information and tours of the Kidd are a treat for children.

It does not take long once you enter the lower decks to understand why sailors nick named Destroyers Tin Cans. If you have a problem with small spaces this might not be for you. Probably the only thing worse would be a tour of a WW II era submarine. It is well worth the tour to get an appreciation for... More

The USA Kidd is a must see for those fascinated by war history. It is amazing to walk around the ship and see everything from the guns, navigation areas, nurse station, living quarters, etc. Clean and well kept.
