“Nice and reasonable attraction”
Reviewed April 15, 2012

We took our 8 year old son to Battleship Cove. We all enjoyed it very much and it was only $32 for the three of us using an AAA discount. A navy plane, battleships etc..there is also a carousel. Don't miss the Pearl Harbor movie. My son really got an idea about what Pearl Harbor was like as did we.

“Superb ships - very few visitors”
Reviewed April 1, 2012

If you are a Maritime History buff you must visit here, easy to find and well worth the entry fee. I spent 3 happy hours here, the Battleship is so large I ended up quite tired clambering about. The only downside is that directional signage on the ships could be better. But to get so much Naval history all in one place is excepetional. I particularly valued being able to get onto the bridge of the subamrine the USS Lionfish.

“really amazing one day visit”
Reviewed March 18, 2012

I first visited and slept over on the battleship 32 years ago, and just again with my own son this weekend. It is an amazing piece of history and a great adventure. The sleepover portion however is bordering on torture. Unless you are a deep easy sleeper you will most likely not get any on an overnight stay here. Perhaps when the weather is warmer the steam in the pipes will not bang through the night like John Henry working on the railroad.
If you are able to get a reasonably early start, by about 10:00-11:00 one day will be plenty. If you feel you must sleep over a 2:00 arrival would be more than sufficient .
The history within the ship is incredible, it will stir the imagination, and reminds us to honor those who served aboard.
