The USS Kidd is a great war ship but the visit was not that interesting. It went so quickly and we were bored. The kids were bored just walking and looking at a ship. The parking is not free. There were only five or six free parking spots. The others were meter maids or parking lots that were paid as... More

At we viewed the USS KIDD it was though we could hear the men's voices of long ago communicating with urgency the orders to fire at the enemy that were coming from all sides. As you looked at the decks were the wounded and dying and fighting men were, you could feel and almost hear the sounds of the hearts... More

The USS Kidd was a WW2 destroyer and now it's a museum. It’s the only vessel in the US Navy allowed to fly the Jolly Roger. The ship is named after an Admiral Kidd who was killed at Pearl Harbour, but the crew admired Kidd the pirate. The crew had a whip round and bought themselves an ice cream machine... More

This museum offers lots to learn and see. From the naval aspects or geography, you will not be disappointed. From 4 to 94 you will love the USS Kidd

Having a boyfriend who was in the Navy, we had to see this. My thoughts were " Well, it is for him." And then we went! I loved it! You get to see how our sailors lived during their time aboard. I especially enjoyed the galley and the radio room. The ship is in great shape, but will need repairs... More

My husband and I share a love for history. The USS Kidd is the second battleship we have toured. This battleship is smaller than the other one, but allows more hands on activities and easily accessible guides for questions. This is a family friendly attraction but be advised that there are steep narrow steps that little ones might have difficulty... More

This ship was made just to kill things!!!!! the '60s. It has so many different kinds of weapons.From WWII, and decommissioned on The tour is self guided, which is cool because there are 4 decks to explore! You can get a good idea how the men lived. We did the lower level of the museum, then the ship, then the... More
