Battleship IOWA served our country proudly in WWII, Korea, and the Cold War. Today, this historic U.S. Navy ship is an iconic Los Angeles landmark, considered one of the region’s best outdoor museums for families and visitors of all ages. Battleship USS Iowa Museum Los Angeles collects relevant artifacts to help tell the story of the ship and the Surface Navy to a broad audience.

Come aboard to follow in the footsteps of generations of IOWA sailors, track the movements of our mischievous mascot Vicky the Dog, and learn why the ship is known as “Battleship of Presidents,” “The Grey Ghost,” and “The Big Stick.” Add one of their behind-the-scenes guided tours to explore areas long off-limits to the public and hear first-hand accounts of service, commitment, and bravery.

Enjoy the museum with both in-person and virtual tour options. The in-person offerings comply with current health department guidelines for Covid-19.
