This whole exhibit makes for a wonderful day. They have a whole series of naval vessels that you can explore. You start on dry land where they have a variety of vessels including a duck boat, aircraft, attack helicopters and even a pair of PT boats. A PT boat is a patrol boat like JFK commanded. Lots of information about... More

My son and I used to do Cub Scout overnights on the MASSACHUSETTS and enjoyed the experience. My wife always wondered what we "lived through." There is so much of this vessel that is "original equipment" -- you are looking at, or through, what an 18 year old sailor saw over two generations ago. You can see how the volunteers... More

Could not believe the size of the ship it looked big on the outside and walking through the inside of it made it seem enormous. You can easily spend a good part of your day on this ship. There are many exhibits throughout the ship. Be ready to climb narrow ladders to the different levels of the ship.

We spent the day their with our son, his wife, and 4 children. We has a wonderful time with new respect for the sailors and the small doorways and spaces. We are an Air Force family and wanted to show our grandchildren another branch of our armed forces.

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.
