USS Kidd is worth seeing and coming to Baton Rouge downtown for. Note when traveling with infants or toddlers that this is not easy access - you can take stollers to the main deck but after that you need to carry your kid around. Ships this era are not too big on space so just note this if you are... More

We were on the levee, so we just went over to see this amazing icon. I am so proud to live in a place where history is all around. This ship is enormous. I would like to visit the inside one day, but I was satisfied to just gaze at history.

Music from the 40's takes you back in time when the USS Kidd was in action. The tour is self guided and shows you where the sailors slept, ate, bathed, cooked, and watched from the deck. There is a lot of climbing up and down stairs, but worth the experience. The Kidd also offers overnight guests for a fee. There... More

I had the pleasure of spending the night on the USS Kidd with my son's Boy Scout Troop. Our guides, James and Joe were great and very personable with the boys and all their questions. How well the boat is laid out with items in place as if never been disturbed all these years. The stories they shared were fantastic!... More

Very neat to get so up close and personal with a naval ship. It's very well exhibited and they give you lots of opportunities to look and touch stuff. Our 8 and 5 year old loved it and it kept their attention. It's a self-guided tour so take as long as you wish. Kids under 5 are free. Put it... More

Fantastically interesting! The Kidd is in fantastic form and she sits, waiting for you to touch and feel her. Imagine such an impressive machine full of systems and weapons and not a single piece of plastic! Don't built em like they use too. If the river is low you can walk up to her props, rudder and bow blade! Not... More

Wonderful museum. The ship is fun to tour and if you have a Cub Scout troop they offer a sleepover. It was a wonderful night and the kids loved it.
