I'm 60 and have been visiting Battle Ship Cove since i can remember as a child. I now take my 30 year old daughter who has been going since she was a child. A three generation tradition. We visit every few years and will continue.

The most amazing display of naval firepower you will ever see. Battleship, Cruiser, Destroyer, PT Boats, Submarine and Cruiser. Definitely worth a visit. You can find coupons on line to limit the cost,. I don't think that kids under 8 should be visiting here. There...More

Loved seeing a genuine PT boat, made famous by John Kennedy. Each ship intersting and different. Nice gift ship. Anyone with an interest in naval history, our history, will like this tour

Battleship Cove was a last minute decision, and I am so glad we stopped. It was raining, which stunk, but the ships were amazing. They also had a cafe on the ship which was really nice. Some of them were so large I got lost.

Depends on your party size and make up. If you are really into history you can easily spend all day there, since there are detailed exhibits all over the place. If you have any children under 12, you may spend a lot of time... 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.
