Battleship Cove harbors the largest collection of preserved US Navy ships in the world, with five historic landmarks that include the battleship USS Massachusetts, the destroyer USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr.,the USS LIonfish (a Balao-class submarine) and a couple of PT Boats. There’s also the Hiddensee, the only example of a Soviet-built missle corvette in the US, which was once a part of the East German People’s Navy.

Don’t miss “A Sailor’s Life: The Story Behind the Steel,” that lets visitors make personal connections by revealing the stories of some of the brave individuals who served about the USS Massachusetts.

Museum admission includes the Maritime Museum that connects the maritime history of Fall River to the greater story of naval heritage and houses more than 150 scale modesl, 30,000 photographs, videos, uniforms and a research library (accessible by appointment only).
