Marvel at the world's largest collection of World War II naval vessels at Battleship Cove, home to an array of submarines and ships of different classes. Visit the museum and admire its collection of fighting craft floating in the harbor. Wander its indoor exhibits to learn more about the engagements the ships and their crew participated in, their experiences, and their postwar histories. Don't miss the museum's crowning glory, the USS Massachusetts, a South Dakota-class battleship that fought battles across the world during World War II--one of the few survivors of its kind. You can even climb aboard to see the vessel up-close for yourself.

  • Great boardwalk and well lit at night. Not the safest location but it's certainly a worthy attractions. The Pokémon GO game is lit here! People are always luring the three stops in front of the carousel at night and there are like 50 people playing the same game standing around. It's cool. 😎
  • I brought my kids here and they enjoyed exploring the ships and submarine. They offer a discount for AAA members.
  • A wonderful family experience. We attended a special weekend for cub scouts. Worth having the guided tour!
  • The Massachusetts is very impressive! You can explore everything on your own - nice!
  • It is amazing to see such a variety of combat vessels in only one place, including a Russian-design corvette, a submarine and a battleship. When I visited it there wasn't too many people, so I felt like doing what I wanted all throug the galleries of the ships, what is a really good thing. It also features a bar inside the battleship and a gift shop. It is, therefore, highly recommended for anyone who likes anything related to military, history or ships in general. I also think it is important to bear in mind that it takes at least a whole day to see all the things in the museum. However, if your visit is shorter, you won't be disappointed, that's sure.
