Very much enjoyed setting foot on this majestic vessel. Brought back my days aboard another US Naval vessel the Iredell County LST-839 during the Vietnam war.

Definitely something fun to do with children or if your interested in Naval history. There are lots of stairs. Strollers would not work. To see the entire ship only takes a few hours. A guided tour would have been much better.

Well worth the visit to see the accessible areas of this immediate post-WW2 warship and the museum collections housed aboard.

From Our Editors

In 1949, the USS Salem began its 10-year career patrolling the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea. A flagship of the 6th Fleet during the Cold War era, it served as a “Lady of Diplomacy,” using its massive canons to impress ambassadors, not to fire on enemies. The ship also made headlines in 1953 when it harbored refugees from Greece following a massive earthquake.

Today permanently docked in Quincy Fore River Shipyard, the Salem is one of the last preserved naval heavy cruisers in the world. Three quarters of the ship is used to honor the history of those who served, with features including a Navy SEALs exhibit, the USS Newport News Memorial Room, and a US Navy Cruiser Sailor Memorial. In addition to memories, the Salem also hosts birthday parties and overnight adventures filled with simulated battles and real-life survival instruction. If they listen closely, visitors might even hear some of the spooky sounds that earned the ship a feature on the SyFy channel’s Ghost Hunters in 2009.
