  • This battleship was a great experience. The tour is self-guided, which was nice for our kids who wanted to run to see everything. There were very well put together rooms that were set up like they were when the ship was in use. It took us about an hour to see the ship.
  • I thought I was a proud Texan already... After visiting the USS Texas and learning so much about this Dreadnought Class Battleship and how it was the most powerful weapon in the world.... well, you can imagine my Texas pride is off the charts! This is a fantastic park to visit. You can feel the history flowing throughout the ship. It's utterly amazing.
  • This battleship is so interesting. I love how they have all the rooms staged to look like when the battle ship was in war.
  • I had the opportunity to take the Hard Hat tour and would recommend spending the extra money if you have the time. The docents who lead the tour are extremely informed and go above and beyond in sharing the history of the ship. Wear smart shoes, and pants that you don't mind getting dirty. Gloves would also be a plus. Do not go in the warm months, or go early in the morning.
  • Great place to take the kids and explore an historic ship. Take your time and look around. You will be suprised how big the ship really is.
