Greatest history lesson taught!

The cove is amazing! Walking through the history of World War II and after was the best history lesson ever!

Truly stunning exibits. A great experience indeed boarding war ships and submarine. It's totally worry the entrance fee. Would like to visit again.

It's a awesome place to visit especially if you have kids and they are in Scouts. I went with my son and his boy scout troop. We slept on board. Excellent experience.

My husband has always wanted to visit Battleship Cove. We finally visited here last week and he thoroughly enjoyed this trip back into history. Very informative day. His grandfather owned an old PT boat and had it in the family for many years so this made this trip even more interesting for us. Very nice day here climbing on the... More

Great place to visit with a family for some fun and neat history. As you are on the actual ships, usually able to engage and entertain kids. One thing I'll never forget is seeing the hammock bunks that the poor sailors had to sleep in...maybe not the best tour for anyone with claustrophobic tendencies.

The collection of ships and subs here is a must see. We plan an overnight trip each year for our Scout Pack, and this year we ventured to Fall River. I like this kind of stuff, not sure I would visit the attraction if I were out as a family. However, what better way to spend a night letting the... More

How often do you get the chance to explore a real life battleship? When I spotted this attraction as I planned our holiday, it was a no-brainer and it turned out even better than I had hoped. After a bit of a hiccup on the way in (signage from the road where there were roadworks was not great), we spent... More

As Royal Navy I was particularly interested in seeing a full fledged battleship in the flesh, and the other exhibits were a bonus. Not disappointed at all, nor was my wife who to be fair was not initially as keen as I. Very interesting to see the conditions of life onboard compared with what today's generation expect/demand. After giving “Big... More

Went to attraction on the way home for a new england trip in june. Spent a little over 2 hours there. I felt the attraction was worth the money and one of the better attractions we saw in new england in terms of being worth the money. The 2 hours worth was a big rush. I think about 4 hours... More

This is one of my dad's favorite destinations. We had a great time bringing our little kids for the first time. Much to see and do and it's self guided so you can go your own speed

Thank Tina T
