  • This is a very good place to visit if you like to learn about our history. They have some outside displays and a small museum to learn about the USS South Dakota. I recommend it.  more »
  • This is essentially some cannons from the battleship in a park with the outline of the ship in the park. I understand what they were doing here but it's worth about 5 minutes. I wouldn't do much but d...  more »
  • The memorial gives you a chance to see just how long that ship was. It is a good lesson for kids and a good remembrance for adults. Easy to find. Worth the stop.  more »

  • This was a stop on a cross country drive. A little-known memorial it was very unique. Because they couldn't bring the actual battleship they build a cement outline of the ship and brought various items from the ship deck to display within the cement outline. At the center is a wonderful museum filled with photos, artifacts, videos and some items to buy. But best of all it is staffed with a knowledgeable volunteer who genuinely cares about the exhibit. This is located in a beautiful park and because it's low-profile it's easy to miss. We bought sandwiches and had a picnic before we explored the "ship". We missed it, but it does have it's own private parking lot located right outside the museum. You have to be going the right way on the main street to enter. I was skeptical of this, but had wanted to stop at "different" things on our trip. It was a quick stop, but well worth it. What a great tribute and memorial.
  • Very creative display symbolizing the battleship. I have traveled through a few times and made sure to bring colleagues to see it too
  • Took the kids here to learn a little history. They had fun playing outside of the museum. Closing for the season 9/30
  • Though the ship is merely outlined, there's a ton of important history here. A beautiful tribute to the most decorated battleship of WWII.
  • A great installed of history! The kids love running around and they can get a real feel for the size and what it might have been like. Good information and we will go back when the visitor center opens in may.
