For $25 each we toured the USS Massachusetts battleship, the Joseph P Kennedy Jr Destroyer and a number of other smaller boats. We didn’t get a chance to tour the sub but we’ll be returning tomorrow (as part of our original ticket) to tour it....More

Educational location bar is fun for the entire family. Kids can learn about histórical facts and take pics with the old school submarines and battleships. Great location.

We toured Battleship Cove with our 14yo son who loves anything WWII. There are many ships to tour and all the climbing/ descending can get tiring. I definitely felt it the next day! It was very hot and humid the day we went so by...More
