Contrary to its name, USS Kidd is actually an old ship used by USA Navy during the WWII. The ship was one of the firsts of that time and was named after Rear Admirall Saac C. Kidd, a martyr of the Pearl Harbour attack. Once the country’s pride, this ship now stands as a historical landmark for the tourists and travelers. As a museum, you will find hundreds of aircraft and ship models along with numerous replicated gun deck of old Ironsides exhibited for the public to see. The display also includes detailed info on the various events and prominent figures who were a part of the incident at that time. Ensure to visit the Louisiana Memorial Plaza which beholds the eternal flame as a memorial to all Louisiana service members lost in combat. A great place to learn about the history of the country and wars that were fought on its soil. A few hours spent here is definitely a worthy investment!

USS Kidd Reviews & Ratings
Cool to see a ship that has served our country. It gives you an interesting look into what living conditions were like for members of our Navy. The museum is a great place to learn about some of Louisiana's greatest heroes who paid the ultimate price for our country's freedom. The ship itself is also an interesting tour. We got our tickets on Groupon which saved us some money.
The museum was really great! I didn’t get to go on the ship, but my kids and husband loved it! It’s a good bit of climbing steps up and down. This is definitely on the list to do again! Also, we caught it on an interactive Saturday where they had people dressed up as soldiers from different times. That was neat!
The people who worked here were nice. My father in law lived on a destroyer for 4 years so he was able to give us a bit of a guided tour. I loved it.
Great place to learn about our naval history. The more that people visit the more money the museum can make the more they can provide! Go and contribute to our veterans and to the Kids!
If you ever wondered why the Greatest Generation was called such, visit this museum. This ship served as a protector and defender for the larger battleships it served. The experience is like no other. It teaches what service really meant and provides a greater understanding of the daily life serving in the WW2 Navy.
