Battleship Cove was a pretty cool experience. Our experience was probably a little different than others because we were on the boat serving beer for the Summer Brewfest! It was a lot of fun and everyone really seemed to enjoy themselves. Being in the Officers...More

No argument here about the coolness of having these vessels here; each one different and open to be on deck and below deck. Really cool. It costs $25 pp. to visit; we had a coupon for $2 off. This is a lot when there are...More

This museum of US naval history is no theme park. It is the real thing with scratches, rust and dents. A person could spend years studying all the equipment on display. Very little is off limits or inaccessible to visitors. A great lesson in American...More

Yes we did it is on a large video screen and you overlook water as you watch it. It explodes in the water and shows the attack and a lot of narration. It last about 15 minutes. Historical.
