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...

I have always been interested in American military history. It amazes me what America's men and women have done to serve our country in the past and in the present. The tour of the ships was exactly what it should be. This is a place where someone should go to see and reflect what serving in the Navy aboard one... More

If you are looking for something cool and HISTORICAL then you should definitely go to The Battleship. It is so cool to check out the Battleship Museum. It is very big and fun to be able to tour ON ALL 3 WATER VESSELS.

I will preface my comments with the reality that the budget for this museum is probably very low to very very low, so I do not know how much more they can do with the funds they have. That being said, let me start with the positive, the cafeteria staff. I had a special order veggie Shepard Pie and it... More

We visited the last Sunday day of 2014. It was a cold day but we were all home and looking for something to do. We decided here as this is my youngest sons favorite place. We used AAA and got a discount on the tickets. We visited all the vessels. The 2 things that should out were the fact that... More

I love to visit the Battleship. The staff have a wealth of knowledge to share with visitors. The ship is showing wear but has a special place in my heart. Over the years I have taken many family members. The children loved exploring this big old ship. My grandson had the priveledge of staying on the ship overnight with his... More

Along the Taunton River there is this walkway, at the beginning (in back of that house) there is a monument on the Poet de Medeiros who is from Loma de Pedreira, Nordeste.
