  • Very nice route in several vessels of the U.S. Navy of 39-45. The course gives a good idea of the conditions of life on board with the means at the time.

  • A favorite attraction when family with kids come to visit. Not so good if you have kids in strollers, though. Tough to wrangle a toddler around but perfect for 5-12 year olds.  more »

  • 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 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.
  • The battle ship is so much fun t explore!
  • 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
  • Very informative! My 5 year old son loved it!!!
