The museum is terrific in itself but the KIDD adds a higher demension. The self guided tours are well mapped out and easy to follow. I'm a Navy vet and was stationed on a WWII era ship. This museum allowed me to give my son a look at shipboard life.

Good experience for folks to learn what military members did and how they lived to secure our freedoms!

We enjoyed our tour throughout the ship. The kids enjoyed climbing the stairs and being able to use a restroom on the actual ship... we loved it

I have been here multiple times over the course of 10 years. The KIDD is still a cool place, especially for kids. Sit in a gunners seat, go up and down the tiny vertical staircases. See sleeping quarters and other rooms. Very fun.

Even if you are not into military memorabilia you will sure appreciate the visit thanks to the cackling radio station playing on board with the music they listened back in those days. The pictures on the working stations, the pin-ups girls, the old underwood typewriters will take you back in time, giving you a more in deep glimpse of what... More

This destroyer represents World War II and is one of the last built between 1942 & 1944. It was one of the first who developed self propelled torpedoes. The tour was laid out in a numbered sequence that allowed you to follow the path from stern to stem to stern without missing anything on the ship. The museum was very... More
