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...

Battleship Cove is a fun and historical place to visit. We spent about an hour wandering around and looking at the sites. Even though the weather wasn't that great, it was still a fun trip.

We liked this place but after two hours of looking thru battle ships my girls and I got a little bored. The novelty wore off after that. My husband wanted to keep going. I can see typical boys LOVING this stuff. The WWII reenactment was interesting but I'd have thought it would be more interactive. It was good though.

Excellent for children and adults 3 yrs and up. The stairs on all the ships are steep, but the top decks are just as exciting. Well maintained area and cafe on the USS Massachusetts! Free for teachers with MTA card and offer a AAA discount.

Be sure to plan plenty of time when you visit Battleship Cove. Senior rate was $15.00 and it was worth every cent. You are able to explore the ships in the cove from top to bottom. We had lunch on the USS Massachusetts. There is a lot of steps, some narrow, just take your time and use the hand rails.... More

If you're looking for some history and adventure this is the place. Not for the squeamish, there are many narrow and steep stairways, more like ladders, that take you deep within these steel WWll weapons! Today was about 85F so it was hot inside parts of the ships. If you are physically able don't miss going inside one of the... More
