I used to sleep over night on the battleship with the boy scouts as a young boy they where great to have the ship all to your self at night. I have also went back a year ago and they have added a movie screen and a show of Pearl Harbor out side. The teenager I was with wasn't that... More

Spent the day at the exhibits. Great stuff to see. Wear good walking shoes and walk the entire ship. Lots of exhibits and stuff to see.

Driving over the Braga Bridge you look down on Battleship Cove. Don't be fooled by how it looks from the bridge. Definitely stop. You will be amazed at the number of ships you you can walk in and through. The battleship(Big Mamie) will take your breath away with it size alone. You can go below decks and experience how the...

The USS Massachusetts is part of the Battle Ship Cove experience and should not be missed. It is great for children to discover what our country went through. I highly recommend.

My husband was like a kid in a candy store on the USS Massachusetts. It was absolutely fascinating to see this ship, how absolutely HUGE it is, what is on board ... again ... WOW. One caveat ... if you have any issues walking, climbing or fear of heights or are claustrophobic you might have some issues here. The ladders... More

One of the better Naval ship museums we've been to. You get a sense of what it is like to be aboard a Navy ship; the cramped quarters and working conditions.

Totally inaccessible to the ambulatory impaired. There are no former Massachusetts sailors who lovingly take care of her as there are on the NJ. The bridge is nothing special (couldn't even sit in the captains chair). Some interesting rooms were closed couldn't see inside gun turrets. After being on the New Jersy, this was disappointing. It is a piece of... More

We had a burger with fries and it was very good, especially the fries, it is very reasonably priced and you eat in the sailors mess which adds to the experience. The staff were friendly and polite. Glad we stopped by.

A great experience with the Scouts. The facility is a historic marvel, with some staff who actually served onboard the ship during the war guiding you. The food was good as was the gift shop. The best part was staying overnight in the bunks. It was a joy for history buffs. I believe that the boys all had a good... More
