Even though I had been here a few years ago, I was pleasantly surprised by how meaningful it was to me. I thought 2-3 hours would be fine but we could have spent the entire day. I especially enjoyed the destroyer because my late grandfather also served on one in WWII. The Medal of Honor video was moving and thought-provoking.... More

My husband and I, and our three kids, ages, 6, 2 and 2, visited Battleship Cove on a Sunday in September, we had such a fun day! We really enjoyed exploring the ships, you can pretty much see everything and go everywhere, in fact I was amazed at some of the steep ladders, some without handrails, that we were allowed... More

The ships are a very worthwhile sightseeing spot. Not very many places have ships like these, nor in as good of condition. The local surrounding area is nice, as long as you don't venture too far out. As with any city, there are some rather unsavory spots, but the park itself is well maintained.

There was a lot to see at Battleship Cove, and my son, who is a military fanatic, thoroughly enjoyed the three hours we spent there. I thought that the submarines were the most interesting. I do wish that they had a self-guided audio tour like the one at the USS Midway in San Diego. That would make things a little... More

This was a fascinating tour. They really showcased these ships very thoughtfully as well as keeping it very interesting. Well worth the money, which was not expensive in the first place.

An awesome place, really gives you a feel of what it was like to serve - battleship, destroyer, or submarine. Recorded clips were informative, and if you catch one of the air raid sequences (sirens, sounds and explosions giving plumes of water) it's quite a thrill

Always enjoyed coming as a kid , now I got the chance to bring my nephew and he loved every minute of it. Only one gripe , the food line on the battleship took forever to order and even longer to get our food , which when kids involved makes for not such a good time . Other then that... More

interesting history; the recorded messages were interesting and done by actual survivors of the ships. There were also plaques in some places but others where my husband would have liked to to know more and really no way to find out. A couple of hours were enough for us to see what we wanted. Lots of steep stairs and small... More

This is a great take. I've been here 3 or 4 times over the years. It gets better everytime I visit. They add more attractions and displays. The battleship, a German missle cruiser, deisel sub, PT boats, US Destroyer, Helocopters...and the list goes on. Great tour for kids and adults. The " Cove" is a great tribute to all Americans...
