We participate in the Nautical Nights, which is the overnight, aimed at scouts. I guess there were about 500 there the night we were there. We stayed on the USS Massachusetts, but you don't really get to say where you would like to stay, just assigned based on the size of your group and where they have space. Battleship Cove... More

I truly hope this stays open really gives a few of Naval history the area around it is going g through construction making it somewhat difficult to navigate busy streets

It was unfortunate to go to this venue on Memorial Day weekend and find that 2 of the 5 exhibits were unavailable. We thoroughly enjoyed the 3 that we did have access to, however.

Wear comfy shoes! If you tire easily, can't do steep stairs, or are claustrophobic don't go here. If you want the real experience of being on a battleship this is for you. Self guided tour, so it could statue you hours to get thru it all. The submarines were closed so we could only go on the ships. The admission... More

It is a great morning to see a battleship and a Russian submarine and an Americam submarine from WWII. Helicop and airplanes are all over the the holding area. The battleship cove is also supports th young USMC program. There are a couple of great restaurants in a walking distance. Water front area is gray and it is next to... More

Couldn't get to it! Road construction and terrible signage! Saw the ships in the distance but never got there. After driving in circles for an hour, we gave up. Will try seeing the subs in Groton instead.

I haven't been here since I was a kid many years who. We took my 13 year old son who loves all things military history. Beautiful day, but breezy. Remember this is on the water so be sure to dress appropriately, that includes deck shoes or sneakers. You'll do a lot of walking and climbing so be sure you have... More

I had gone to this place as a child on a field trip. I decided to take my wife and kids to this place many years after the first visit. It does have an admission fee. This place is considered the worlds largest display of decommissioned military vessels. It has a submarine and three ships highlighted by the biggest one... More

This is my second time at Battleship Cove (last time was back in 2011). Plan full a full day here as going through the USS Massachusetts takes quite awhile as there are a ton of exhibits and videos throughout the ship. It will also take time going exploring the sub, destroyer and the Russian corvette, plus the other building with... More

We visited in March, when it was cold, and some snow still remained. I mention this because the Patrol Boat building was unheated -actully colder than outside. The restrooms were unpleasant and tatty, not one cubicle door in the Men's had an intact lock. Outside no-one had cleared the ice. The decks were treacherous to unuseable. The wood was rotten...
