Battleship USS "IOWA"

Memories of World War II, the Korean War, and the Cold War are imbedded in the steel hull of the Battleship USS IOWA. The ship served the US Navy for 70 years of active and reserve duty before coming to rest at her current berth in San Pedro. Originally laid down in 1940, the IOWA was the most advanced battleship of the time, capable of traveling more than 40 mph, firing her 16-inch big guns 25 miles, and housing more than 1,400 sailors in specialized compartments. Now a floating museum honoring the battleship's place in 20th-century naval combat, the vessel welcomes visitors to explore her decks, strolling about the wood-covered main level or venturing into the interior. The restored ship lays seven decks open to visitors, from the hull-enclosed mess to the lofty bridge, allowing them to get an up-close look at the missile deck and imagine what it would have been like to be a sailor in the Pacific in 1944.
