Such an amazing sight it was great to get a glimps of history the day we visited there was a reenactment going on, a day well spent. Only a stones throw from where we were staying. Definitely worth a visit.

Great way to spend an afternoon in the Fall River Area. See how our sailors and military lived during vital times in America's history. The museum exhibits are excellent and very educational. Some exhibits (ie the interior of the submarine Lionfish) may be difficult to maneuver depending on age and physical limitations. But there is a good deal to see... More

Very good spot to visit. Starts off with very friendly ppl to explain the tour & then your off on your own. The tour takes you to the patrol boats & then on a submarine. The battleship was great to wonder thru on your own. The ward room snacks were awesome. The mamoral room that was set up was very... More

It is not just the boats, there is the Carousel from Lincoln Park, there is the heritage museum, a small Rail Road museum, Maritime Museum. A few restaurants within walking distance, you can catch the ferry to Block Island, or just walk the boardwalk up to the Veteran's Park with the recreation of the Iowa Jima flag setting from WW2

This was a very interesting place, so much to see. Wear comfortable shoes because there's lots of walking and climbing stairs. We went at the behest of my son, who is a huge WWII enthusiast. For those who have been about the USS Alabama in Mobile, the Massachusetts is comparable. That unto itself would be worth the visit, but there... More

This place is a bit hard to find even though it's very visible from the Fall River bridge. The exit off the bridge comes up very fast and isn't well marked. There're several ships ranging from PT boat to big battleship. On the bigger ships (starting with the sub), you gets to go inside to explore the different compartments (engine... More

My husband and I went to see these amazing ships today. They were having a remembrance ceremony for the victims of 9/11 and those lost in our military since...it brought tears to our eyes. We'll need forget. It was the most appropriate thing for us to do today.

We have visited Battleship Cove so many times I can't even count. Great place for families and friends. The museums give so much history that repeat visits are a necessity. The weekend and special occasion talks from veterans are a must, very enjoyable and informative.

It is a beautiful Naval Museum, for people like me who love the ships of war and history. The USS Massachusetts is the Best!!

A great way to learn first hand about naval history over the last 75 years. The collection of ships - from the spectacular battleship USS Massachusetts to the tiny PT boats - reveal what life must have been like aboard and especially under battle conditions. You can wander around all the vessels, inspect the cramped living quarters and view all... More
