  • We took my 95 year old father to see this. He was in WW2. It's a no brainer to have handicap facilities but they had nothing. I imagine that many Vets have had this experience. A way to get into the main room with all the memorabilia would have been enough.

  • This was just so so good, the Volunteers were very helpful and the ship was very well kept and it was a great experience for my three children, one who is a navy cadet, and she found it mind blowing and informative, my five year old thought all his dreams had come true, and the game of finding Vicki was perfect for the kids. Thank you what an awesome ship.

  • If you are a military veteran or just have an interest in the military then this is a must for you when next in Hawaii. I didn't realise that the ship was so big and its history so extensive and I was totally amazed by what I saw during the trip. My only regret was that I didn't do it on our own as being with a tour it somewhat limited our time on board. Even so it was a great tour and I recommend it to everyone.

  • It was ok. Expected a little bit more.

  • The boat/museum was great! But don't get tickets via Viator for USS Iowa. You still need to stand in line at the ticket booth to trade your printed ticked for a real one

  • We did this tour before, now there is a whole new section in the museum, it was great!

  • this was ok tour they are still working on restoring it a lot of blocked of space still worth going and worth the money you pay

  • seeing the engine room would be nice

  • Great, although it would have been better if you could see more of the ship, not least inside one of the turrets.

  • a great example of military and technical history. Great work of a lot of volunteers to save it and to get it on display.
