This is great to bring the kids or just yourself. Amazing ship! Battleship cove has so many attractions now. It is a must see on your trip to the East Coast
Very interesting place to visit along with the Russian Submarine and the PT boat nearby. Around the corner is a Railroad museum (small) and a nearby Carousel and the Heritage Museum. Quite a bit to do... read more »
Amazing to walk around such a huge ship. Good exhibits below deck but would have preferred the original guts of the ship to remain intact. There are other ships and exhibits to visit on the same site.... read more »
I was lucky enough to do a Living History event and stayed aboard the Massachusetts. Staff was wonderful. Displays are dated and getting shabby, but the accommodations were clean and comfortable (ish!) Can't wait to do it again.
I feel that most of the people willing to go and leave a review would enjoy this place if they floated a 1/48 wooden scale model of the USS Massachusetts and called it a heritage site. Well I'm one of those people. It does offer more than that. The approach is reasonably hands off, you wander the boats and read the materials provided. Considering the size of the ships and the narrowness of the passages, I would agree with this approach. You dip in and out of the ships as you need. Not for the claustrophobic or those who overheat easily. I think they could add a better overview of each ship, but I was impressed overall, particularly with the number of displays of related themes (women in war, PT Squadrons, models) with the battleship itself.
I really love this place. They have done so well preserving all of the ship. If you like WW2 history this is the place to be. Highly recommended a visit to Battleship Cove
Its sad we don't have any more the battle ships seid to the world no America s power that no other war ships can do
Visited twice as part of USN reunion. Recommend to anyone interesred in history and WW II USN SHIPS.
