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 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

And nicely laid out with an associated museum. You can traverse the many decks and rooms of this warship. Marvel at the cramped quarters. Have a lie on one of the bunks and imagine your ship under attack by Japanese Kamikaze pilots. Enjoy
