  • It is interesting to have the chance to visit a battleship and to learn about Texas history. Unfortunately when we went there were too many children running around the ship (like a play ground) so we ...  more »
  • The nearby American Democratic Tower is also very strong, there are not many visitors to the day, although the ship is old, but it should be related to the expenses of the Pearl Harbor after the few famous, but the ship volunteers are still very enthusiastic and enthusiastic about the introduction, less people crowded instead of more leisurely participation!

  • Enjoyed visiting here. Its much more than a ship. There are other things right in front with historic value. The staff is great. Easy to get to off the parkway. It was not crowded either in case you want to avoid big crowds.
  • Excellent tour for entire family. I'd recommend for anyone in the area or passing by. Repairs are always going on though so some parts of ship closed off. I hear that eventually they would like to dry dock ship to help preserve it. Worth the 3-12$ price of admission. Take your lunch and stay a while. Beautiful park with trees close by for great views of this majestic beauty.
  • We didn't get on the battleship but the view of it was still impressive. The kids enjoyed seeing it up close and it was enough to satisfy. Even if you don't tour the ship, a quick stop to check it out is worthwhile.
  • My wife Susan is a native born in Texas went to this historical Monument when she was in grade school. The memory had a great impact in her life. Love for the Lone Star State is always there!
  • This is an amazing piece of history. It is a great experience and there are more areas that are accessible throughout the ship than any other WWII ship I have visited.
