Come aboard for a unique experience that takes you on a memorable journey through World War II, Korean War, and Cold War as you follow in the footsteps of thousands of sailors that lived on this city at sea. Visitors get to tour six decks and numerous exhibits on this Battleship that hosted three U.S. Presidents during her service of over three decades.
