Battleship Iowa {Los Angeles}

Planning a few summer trips and one of them is going to take us back to California again.

While browsing for different things to do, I came across Battleship Iowa, the West Coast's only battleship open to the public.  It sounds like a lot of fun, especially for the boy, so I decided it is now a part of our vacation plans.

Considered one of the "Best Coolest Exhibits to See with Your Kids," your tour takes you on a journey through World War II, the Korean War, and the Cold War to experience the life of a sailor on the lead ship of the last class of gunships. Take the unique interactive tour included in your tour admission and kids will enjoy the scavenger hunt also included.

Other options include:

Camp Battleship - a youth overnight program that begins with a STEAM introduction tour, dinner, evening activity, and sleeping in the actual bunks that sailors used during IOWA's last commissioning. Continue to enjoy the ship in the morning with breakfast in the mess decks and time in our ship's store. Camp Battleship guests continue to rave about the fun they have on board the ship!

Youth STEM Education & School Tour Programs - a field trip to Battleship IOWA presents an array of entirely novel stimuli to the student. The features of a battleship compel their attention as it confronts them with features unprecedented in their experience. Most student visitors have never been aboard a ship of any type, much less a vintage WWII warship. They walk through President Roosevelt's private cabin, and climb to the Admiral's Bridge for an unmatched seven-story vista of their historic maritime village. They participate in a STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) experience coupled with history creating a well-rounded educational event.
