Marvel at the world's largest collection of World War II naval vessels at Battleship Cove, home to an array of submarines and ships of different classes. Visit the museum and admire its collection of fighting craft floating in the harbor. Wander its indoor exhibits to learn more about the engagements the ships and their crew participated in, their experiences, and their postwar histories. Don't miss the museum's crowning glory, the USS Massachusetts, a South Dakota-class battleship that fought battles across the world during World War II--one of the few survivors of its kind. You can even climb aboard to see the vessel up-close for yourself. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Fall River holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Battleship Cove and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Awesome. Only complaint is all the vessels need some restoration work. Rust removed, plates repaired or replaced, wood deck refinished or replaced, paint, etc. The exhibits are top notch. Gift shop well stocked. Snack bar on BB59 is not bad. Staff and volunteers are competent and polite.
  • It was fun for the whole family and for a loving couple to walk and enjoy the sites. I was happy how wonderful it was for us to enjoy on our date night. A beautiful evening and a wonderful sunset. Seeing the battleships and watching it light up in the darkening night added to the beautiful scenery
