Bring a camera with a Flash. Go into the belly of the beast. Down to the engine room. Level 2 is very interesting with all the departments. Amazing what kind of a War Machine from 1914 this was and still could be.

There are employees of the parks and recreation department walking throughout the ship with lots of interesting information to share. If you make friends with one of them, they can turn your self-guided tour into a much more exciting trip!

From Our Editors

What makes your business stand out?

The Battleship Texas is located next to the San Jacinto Battleground, so visitors get an opportunity to experience two great historical sites in one location. Have a picnic under wonderful trees. Bring your camera and capture some great photographs.

What inspired you (or the owner) to start or run this business?

The Battleship Texas is the last remaining U.S. ship to serve in both WWI and WWII. It is also the last of the Dreadnought-style ships. We work hard to maintain her, and nothing makes us happier than when people come to visit The Might T.

What is your most popular offering?

Our Hard Hat Tours are offered five times each year. They occur in January, March, May, October, and November. You can make a reservation on on our website. We also offer an Overnight Education Program and we have hosted 40,000 children at our overnight camp.

Anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?

Visitors of all ages have visited The Texas since 1948 and continue to do so. Come walk the same decks where the heroes of yesterday answered our nation's call to protect America.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?

Visiting [The] Texas can be deeply moving for many people. It is also highly educational for visitors of all ages. In 1914, The Texas was considered the most powerful weapon on the planet. To walk her decks provides memories for years to come.

What’s your favorite part about your job?

Meeting visitors and having the opportunity to see their reactions to the experience of being on The Might T.
