Getting to climb up and down in a battleship and destroyer was pretty cool. My wife & 16 year old son thought so too. The battleship is definitely amazing; thinking about what it would be like to be stationed on a ship like this, or having a hand in building it, or designing it. AMAZING !!! I was in awe.... More

My wife and I recently took our two grandchildren (ages 10 & 12) to visit. The kids had a great time climbing and exploring the ships. My grandson particularly liked the model display inside the battleship! This a great venue for children this age and an opportunity to learn some real time history about America's greatest generation.

I am not really into battleships so I wasn't too excited about going but I must say I really enjoyed my visit to Battleship Cove. Loved learning the history of these vessels and all I can say is that the men on these ships and submarine were so very brave. Battleship Cove is a must see for all who have... More

what a great location. Still can not believe I have been on such a massive battleship like that...and the submarine is smaller then I would have thought. The care and restoration that have gone into these exhibits is amazing. Again I am honored that I had a chance to enjoy history.

Wonderful experience from start to finish. There is a lot of history on display the ships are open and free to walk thru. Having Arm Services on hand to answer questions and add to the displays was very nice and interesting. The kids had a great time walking thru the ships and being able to sit behind and operate some... More

Amazing visit to this old giant and some of its smaller sisters. Great to walk around to the lowest levels of the ship and see how things was constructed. Must have been exiting and scary being onboard. There is not much guiding so you need to read - and pre knowledge is good.

If you like battleships, and the like, this place is for you! We visited battleships and submarines right in the harbor. Vessels from different time periods so you could see the technology changes. It was eerie being down below in one of the ships -- not for the claustrophobic! Other displays and information on-land at the site, as well as... More

It was like going back in time. I got to see how my relatives lived as they went to war on these incredible vessels. It's really an eyeopener reliving history.

My almost 13-year-old grandson is very interested in World War II, so this was a natural for him. While it LOOKS like a small site, if you actually tour the many available boats, it's HUGE! Well worth it for anyone interested in the US Navy or WWII. Very enjoyable.

My dad came to visit and wanted to see the sights of the area. So, I drove down to Fall River and showed him the USS MASSACHUSETTS. I've been there numberous times (Cub Scout and Boy Scout trips). We spent the day walking around this awesome ship. Alot of new things have been added just recently (so if you have... More
