Visited Battleship cove with friends. I had been there over thirty years ago and it is worthwhile to visit as it was then. Incredible to see how The brave crews lived and worked on these warships. Only problem is as getting up on and around these ships as an older person. It was easy thirty nine years ago. Tough accessibility... More

We've been here twice now over the years, and this is a wonderful 1-2 hour visit for anyone. Our kids were absolutely captivated.

Super historical way to look at history. You can go through the boat and see the kitchen in the ship, the beds,a nd even the nurses station. It truly is fun to experience.

Battleship Cove is a great place to visit and learn about the PT Boats, Battleships and Submarines plus other military vehicles. You can tour each of these ships and submarines and get a first hand look at what our brave service men had to endure during their service time. Parents take your children so they can learn about our past... More

My 11 year old son: he liked walking around the ships and subs; he got a little freaked out walking inside the boats. (Pretty funny). I liked walking around , both outside and inside. LOTS of history, the PT exhibit inside the larger ship is a must. It gets hot, so be prepared and treat yourself to purchasing a drink... More

We came here with a family ranging from ages 5-65. Very educational and interactive. The young kids enjoyed going on and inside all the ships and seeing the missiles and the jail and cots..we spent 3hrs here and still didn't cover one whole ship and all the inside spaces. There is a lot to see and read about.

We went as six people to the Battleship cove. We visited 4ships. The visit was 4 hours of exhibits. We climbed into the big guns and saw how people lived aboard the ship. We walked on a battleship, destroyer, cruiser, and a submarine. From the large to the small. The films were informative, parking free and plenty of place to... More

It was worth the visit just to see the PT boats. Throw in the USS Mass a WW2 battleship, a sub tour and the USS Joseph Kennedy. Staff is very friendly and knowlegable. Very good gift shop. Be aware ships are difficult for tall people. I'm six foot seven and served in the Coast Guard, these ships had me ducking.... More

Battleship Cove centers around the USS Massachusetts, BB-59, and Indiana Class Battleship; Submarine Lionfish, Destroyer Kennedy,two wonderfully restored PT boats, and a Russian Corvette. There is a great deal of information for the landlubber and the staff is full of additional facets of life aboard these vessels. I visit there often and make it a note to take in the... More

My grandsons are 9 and 12. We took them here and they had a really good time. My 12 year old is into ships and missiles and was just enthralled with the visit. A great time was had by all.
