THE BATTLESHIP USS IOWA MUSEUM

A place for family fun and adventure


USS Iowa Museum and KidsOne glimpse of the enormous gray ship on the active Los Angeles Waterfront and the excitement builds. Once your tour gets underway, that is when the entire family realizes how unique and enjoyable an adventure on the world’s greatest warship truly is. 

There’s a reason for this. We are popular amongst families, having the distinction of being named one of the "Best Cool Exhibits to See With Your Kids" by CBS Los Angeles and one of 100 Things to Do in Los Angeles Before You're 10 by the Red Tricycle.
