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.

Very cool being on a battleship or inside a submarine. The kids can run around and sit on every cot, seat, gunner's seat, etc. The displays are ok, a bit outdated and tired, but neat to look at. Just watch your head!

My husband and I spent the day at Battleship Cove. There was so much to do and see going through these vessels. Well worth the visit if you are able to climb down the stairs. We absolutely loved the exercise as well as the many floors and multiple rooms. Thank you to our military!

In order to see and enjoy the entire ship, you will need a good day and comfortable footwear! It is an excercise going through her but, you'll not need to pack a lunch as there is an outstanding caf in the wardroom! It is also warm below decks so perhaps a light jacket you can carry below and wear above.

If you appreciate the US Navy then you have to visit this museum. Great collection of ships, models, and boats. Best collection of PT Boat memorabilia anywhere. The self guided tours of the battleship, destroyer, submarine, multiple PT boats, landing craft and missile boat really brought back memories of my time in the Navy and allowed me to share my...

This is amazing for ages 4+ since children love to run around ships and adults would enjoy the history of the ship. You will spend about an hour here, there is also a submarine you can go on. After you can go to the park and have a picnic or relax by the bay.
