Experience firsthand what it was like to serve on board a Navy warship.
Don't just learn about historyŚlive it! At Battleship Cove, you will experience firsthand what it was like to serve on board a Navy warship in WWII. You can sound the diving horn on Submarine Lionfish before you slip below the sea...you can crank the handwheels on Big Mamie's 40-mm guns as you knock enemy planes from the sky....
But your journey doesn't end there. Sail through the Cold War on USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. and learn how the ship's unmanned helicopter hunted Soviet submarines. Or climb on board a high-speed missile corvette that the Soviets designed to fight us.
Whether you're a die-hard naval history buff or a casual enthusiast of military hardware, you'll have much to discover at Battleship Cove!
