Very educational visit! Never, would I imagine visiting a ship is USN history, but I'm so glad I did! We were looking for things to do in Baton Rouge, and boy did we find something. You go through a self guided tour, with a map that gives you brief descriptions of each area. You're able to see what life is... More

The USS Kidd is a look back into the past and a visit here is a time to reflect on the sacrifice of our WWII patriots. Close to 40 Navy men died on this ship as the result of a Japanese kamikaze shelling, and taking a self-guided tour of the ship gives a small glimpse of the cramped quarters and... More

We had time before our flight and went to see the USS Kidd. We were not disappointed. Enjoyed the indoor model ship displays and the tour of the KIDD. We had our 11 yr. son and he thought it was great!. Brought my mother who was 75 and she was unable to do most of the self guided tour of... More

Got there before opening on a Saturday morning (I thought it opened at 9:30 not 10:00) and parked in one of the free spaces alongside the building. The museum wasn’t open yet so we had a stroll along the paved river embankment then just hung around the museum building watching the staff inside, hoping they would open early (they didn’t)....

I'm not interested in military sight seeing but my husband loved it. The ship was active and is well maintained

I went to USS KIDD just because I curious what inside the ship. But, when I know that I have to pay for a ticket, I thought it was not necessary to pay a ticket just to enter the ship. I only took a picture outside the ship.

We stayed with our Cub Scout Pack overnight on the USS Kidd. I can't say enough great things about Mr. Tim, who was our guide. It was dark when we boarded, but we were able to go back on Sunday and look at the ship in daylight. Will be visiting again sometime to bring my daughter who likes to learn... More
