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

UNITED STATES BATTLESHIPS PART I-BATTLESHIP MASSACHUSETTS (THE WARSHIP SERIES I) I sit at the shore of my state, looking over an unsettled river and turbulent ocean, as I have done for over 50 years. I may not be as large as some of my sisters in other parts of my country, being only 681 feet in length, nor am I... 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.

This was a great attraction and educational as well. Took our grandson and he loved it. I did not tell him where we were going and when we drove up and he saw the ships his eyes opened wide. I had told him this was a surprise for his Easter present. When we got out of the car he said... More

Great location, easy to find. The staff was friendly. Bring good shoes there are lots of ladders and stairs to climb while touring the ships.
