The Battleship Iowa Museum
250 South Harbor Blvd
San Pedro, CA 90731
Celebrate the American Spirit at the Battleship IOWA educational museum & attraction - the West Coast’s only Battleship open to the public and the 2013 winner of the SSHSA museum ship of the year. Considered one of the “Best Cool 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. Walk the wood decks of a battleship and see areas such as the 16” guns, 5” guns, missile decks, bridge, mess areas, and the world famous Captain’s Cabin - with the only bathtub installed on a battleship for a President. Known as “The Battleship of Presidents”, IOWA has hosted three Presidents - Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, and George H.W. Bush - and numerous dignitaries during almost 70 years of service. Battleship IOWA is located at the L.A. Waterfront, former home to the US Navy Battleship fleet prior to World War II and an area rich in maritime history. The Battleship IOWA Museum is closed on Thanksgiving and Christmas.
