I'm so proud that my father served on the USS South Dakota during World War II, and this museum and memorial are a tribute to him and to all of the other brave men who served aboard her. We had a wonderful tour of the museum by Opal, who was very knowledgeable about the history of this ship. It made me wish that more mementoes of the ship had been saved before she was scrapped. Very informative to learn some history about some of the battles in the Pacific during WWII.
It's only open during certain months of the year so check ahead if you want to visit.
