Lots and lots of history, when we arrived, there was a retireman celebration being held on the ship while we were there. It was awesome, to see all the men/women in uniform.

When you visit the USS Kidd, it's like travelling back in time. Everything is well kept for a such old ship. You will hear and see original audio! wow.

You can go in/around/through almost every single part of the ship, which was so neat to see and imagine how these people really lived on these ships.

The USS Kidd is named for the Battleship Squadron Flag officer who died aboard the USS Arizona 12/7/1941. The self guided tour explores most of the nooks and cranies of the Destroyer. If warships are a passion this is a must see.

Well worth a visit, not only does it have the ship that you can tour, but it also has a nice museum that goes more in depth about the boat and some other history on naval boats.

I agree that this is a permenant display. There is also a great museum that you can visit before or after the tour of the ship.
