Battleship USS Iowa served our country proudly in WWII, Korea, and the Cold War. Today, the historic U.S. Navy ship is an iconic Los Angeles landmark and considered one of the region’s best outdoor museums for families and visitors of all ages. During your fresh air visit and tour, you will follow in the footsteps of sailors and our mischievous mascot, Vicky the Dog and experience first hand why she is know as the “Battleship of Presidents”, “The Grey Ghost”, and “The Big Stick”. The self-guided outdoor tour includes free use or our award-winning mobile app and the Vicky the Dog scavenger hunt. Create memories and see why Battleship USS Iowa visitors continue to rate us as one of the best outdoor museums in Los Angeles.
