Good experience. We had a 50th USS Badger DE-1071 reunion, in Long Beach. Stationed in L.B. 69-73. Stationed on destroyers. So this visit was extra special for us Sure would have liked to see inside her. Our 5 inch guns were quite small, compared to the 16 inchers. Haze Grey, & underway. Great time, Highly recommend.

I have two friends that I’ve known for 52 years and we have maintained a great friendship by getting together a few times a year. Most recently, we got together at the Battleship Iowa and had a blast!!! The tour was limited to the outside portion of the Battleship due to COVID restrictions. It was still fun and we were able to explore every one of the decks! Special thanks to all of the Sunday crew aboard the battleship. They were friendly and informative. We had the pleasure of talking with one of the staff at length. Pauli walked with us through the Battleship and shared some of his personal experiences with us. He served in the United States Navy and had been stationed aboard the Iowa. We found his stories fascinating! I would highly recommend touring the Iowa, she was an amazing Battleship! God Bless America and our Military!!!

My 9 year-old grandsons and 7 year old granddaughter couldn't stop raving about the experience! Mr. Sloe, our guide, was informative and friendly, and kept the kids engaged throughout our tour. My grandchildren and I were enthralled with our first-hand experience with history!

Lots of history, that was enhanced by the WWII veterans who told their stories and explained what life was like onboard.

The USS Battleship Iowa Museum,located at one the busiest seaports in the world-The Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro,California, is a terrific museum and battleship to visit and climb aboard! The Battleship USS Iowa Museum is a maritime museum located at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, Los Angeles, California, United States. Family friendly with all current CDC protocols in place, The USS Iowa fights Covid like it fought all the enemies it faced on the 7 seven seas during its commisioned years! USS Iowa (BB-61) was the lead ship of the last class of U.S. Navy battleships to be built by the United States. The battleship was originally commissioned in 1943 and served during World War II, the Korean War, and through the Cold War. Iowa earned 11 battle stars during her career and hosted three U.S. Presidents, ultimately earning the nicknames Battleship of Presidents and Big Stick. Iowa was awarded to the Pacific Battleship Center on September 6, 2011 for display at the Port of Los Angeles in San Pedro, California – home to the United States Battle Fleet from 1919 to 1940. Iowa opened in Los Angeles on July 4, 2012 to a crowd of over 1,500 supporters and veterans at Port of Los Angeles Berth 87. The USS Iowa Museum offers daily tours, group programs, education visits, special events, filming, military ceremonies, and is in the process of starting an overnight program. Daily tours include visits to see the largest guns on a U.S. Navy ship,officers ward room, President Roosevelt's cabin, armored bridge, missile decks, enlisted berthing, mess decks, helicopter deck, and other areas. The ship is located at the Los Angeles World Cruise Center and has over 2,100 parking spaces available. Iowa has played various roles in films and television including NCIS: Los Angeles, American Warships, Bermuda Tentacles, and Dark Rising. Iowa is home to annual American-focused events including the City of Los Angeles Veterans Appreciation,a Memorial Day Celebration, and September 11 remembrance. . . . #pacificfleet #atlanticfleet #portoflosangeles #sanpedro #battleshipussiowa #battleshipussiowamuseum #museums #usnavy #navy #historicallandmarks #waynesalvatti #photografxworldwide #losangelesworldcruisecenter #gonavy #seamen #visitsanpedro #visitlosangeles #visitlongbeach #fourthofjuly #covid #cdc #besafe #behealthy #safetovisit #family #nauticalmuseums
