Battleship USS Iowa Museum – Overview
The Battleship USS Iowa Museum, located at the Los Angeles Waterfront at San Pedro, is not only a brilliant feat of engineering, science and technology, it’s a national treasure. The Battleship USS IOWA Museum is a Top 10 regional attraction and rated one of the ‘Best Cool Exhibits to see with your Kids’ by CBS Los Angeles.
Battleship IOWA was first commissioned February 22, 1943. Back then, it became the first ship of her class to be commissioned by the United States. She later became known as “The Battleship of Presidents,” for having hosted three Presidents – Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush.
Aboard the mammoth 887-foot vessel which spans 6 decks and displays a variety of exhibits, you’ll, for instance, get the chance to see some of the largest guns on a US navy warship, President Roosevelt’s private cabin, missile decks, helicopter decks and much more. Inside the USS Iowa Museum, learn about the history of the battleship and the achievements of the brave sailors who served America over a multitude of decades.
It is also the perfect destination for an excursion with the whole family. Children, for example, can follow the mascot dog named Victory on a popular scavenger hunt. In addition, children can also use the “Jungle Gym” at sea for a hands-on experience. They will learn many interesting things about history! There is something to experience for old and young!
The crew on the USS Iowa are always thrilled to welcome you. Every day is a privilege to not only showcase their pride, but also make your family day out a unique and memorable experience.
