Dress comfortably. Ladders and passageways are small. Great history lesson!

Allow plenty of time to take in all the details and ask questions about the ship and history (two hours or more at a leisurely pace). The docents are very knowledgeable and love to share their information!

A wealth of history. Having multiple de-commissionings and always being pulled out of the mothball fleet to go fight another war. Able to see living, eating and sleeping quarters puts everything in perspective and the life they had to live. The size and mass of those 16" guns is hard to believe. All hands on deck were excellent, knowing a wealth of information. Thanks to all today and all who served aboard the USS Iowa, BB-61.

  • $34 for four general-admission adult tickets (up to a $72 value)

Once onboard, you can take the self-guided Tour Alpha, starting in the main deck's wardroom before venturing up into the stateroom installed for FDR when he traveled aboard the ship on his way to the Tehran Conference. Heading up into the bridge, you can check out navigation and aiming consoles as well as aerial views of the forward guns. Explore the antimissile systems and Tomahawk launchers on the higher levels before plunging down below deck to see the mess and a theater that details the ship's storied history.

Though this merchant sometimes offers a discounted price online, this Groupon is still the best deal available.

About The Battleship Iowa Museum

The Battleship Iowa Museum Board a historic battleship and see history come to life before your eyes. Named one of the best exhibits to see with your kids by CBS Local, the Battleship Iowa Museum is the West Coast's only battleship open to the public. Walk the wooden decks and check out the 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. New for 2017, you'll get an up-close look at a Korean War-era Piasecki HUP-2 Retriever helicopter, fully restored and sitting on Iowa's flight deck. You'll also be able to have an augmented reality HUP Experience of flying an actual HUP helicopter, as well as take a simulated ride in a virtual reality Navy Flight Theater. The 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.
