A little disappointing after visiting USS Alabama in Mobile. I'm a Vietnam Navy veteran and thought it would be good to bring the Grandsons to Battleship Cove. Attraction was very hard to find, there were very few signs pointing the way. Ships were not real nice, a lot of rust. My former piece of equipment, the ASROC launcher on the... More

If you can climb around, get up into the big 16 inchers turret. Smells like oil and diesel, brings back memories.

This is a superbly curated attraction. Unlike many modern museums ie Imperial War Museum North (Manchester, England) it has not been dumbed down to cater for bored teenagers. The explanations are adult, informative and stimulating. I'd never been on a battleship before (and I'm pretty old) and I learned so much. The screen presentations of veterans explaining their time on... More

I live in the area and have visited and enjoyed it numerous times. Other attractions include the destroyer USS Joseph P. Kennedy, a WWII USN submarine, an actual Russian small missile ship and a number of shore displays.

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

This ship is of course the favorite to see, based on the sheer size and her history at sea. there is a museum on board and also food and drink for purchase.
