Battleship Cove, Fall River, MA map
Terrific Day Spent Aboard WWII BattleshipsI knew at the start of summer that Battleship Cove would be a field trip destinantion for us this year. So, on a beautiful day in August, the kids and I packed up for an adventure to Fall River, MA! I had three boys in tow who are avid military enthusiasts, so the 'Are we there yet?' was heard several times during our 50 minute trek. However, once in the area, the view from the highway of Battleship Cove is amazingly breathtaking and I found myself overcome with excitement at our destination. Admission was VERY reasonable for the five of us to get in (6 and under get in free) and the collection of attractions was more than I had even imagined. You start out in the museum building which houses smaller boats (American and Japanese PT boats), diorama's of villages in Vietnam, and smaller artifacts. Once you pass through here, it's on to the ships! How grand and large these vessels are! So many nooks and crannies to explore and lots of stairs to climb up and down to various deck levels. The submarine was facinating and claustrophobic. The USS Massachusetts is a humongous destroyer and unfortunately too big to see all of it in the time we had to be there. The lower level of this ship houses a museum of small models of jeeps, tanks, ships, planes, etc. We will return and start with the USS Massachusetts! Other interesting sights were the helicopters and plane! This is definitely a MUST SEE adventure!
