  • Welcome to the United States Naval Shipbuilding Museum Online. Located in historic Quincy, Massachusetts. The USNSM is home to the USS Salem, the world's only preserved Heavy Cruiser. We are located in the former Quincy Fore River Shipyard, once one of the Nation's largest Shipbuilding Enterprises.
  • Great to learn so much about a war ship I never thought a ship would have these many different things. Proper hospital, surgery room, dentist, post office, medical ship, entertainment area, tailor shop etc. cafeteria and kitchen sections were very bit. There are still plenty of plates, most likely the originals ones from ancient days. It’s a considerably big ship( ~700ft). You have scope of getting lost in it. But don’t worry, all areas are well marked; there are exit markings everywhere on the floor. So unless you be over experimental in wandering the areas marked as restricted, you should be safe
