“A step back”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

For anyone that service or not, this is a stopping place to take a look, free admission and only take donations if you choose. Great history that shaped the WWII. Many great items from the ship herself, and plenty of history inside with displays.

“Worth a visit for history buffs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2014

A very nice and free exhibit of the US battleship South Dakota. Though not a complete ship, the display brings it to life. The museum is also a nice display of artifacts from the ship and era.

“Not the ship itself, but very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2014

This place has lots of info and memorabilia and actual artifacts from this WWI battleship. The whole ship is not there, just parts of it. Lots of exhibits and personal accounts of this ship, and pictures, galore. It was very interesting, and we spent over an hour looking and reading the displays.
