  • They have some great artifacts and very cool pieces to display from the ship, WWII and Japan. Worth the stop, free admission.  more »
  • Outside there is an outline of the Battleship and a few other items from the ship. The museum took about 30 minutes to look through.  more »
  • This has the best little museum with great pieces of history, from pictures to weapons to uniforms. The framework of the Battleship is to scale and the anchor and chain is massive.  more »

  • Very informative, worth the visit. Not only learned something new, but also corrected something I THOUGHT I knew. That cement outline of the ship was eye-opening. Almost 1200 people crammed into that space. I couldn't live like that no matter how many potatoes I peeled or planes I shot down. Glad I was an Army grunt...
  • 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.
