Los Angeles: Skip-the-Line Battleship Iowa Museum Ticket

1. Los Angeles: Skip-the-Line Battleship Iowa Museum Ticket

Learn about the Battleship of Presidents and see how sailors lived during your visit to the Battleship IOWA Museum. As you walk onboard you'll be greeted on the quarter deck and be given a safety briefing. Appreciate Iowa’s graceful, narrow lifted bow as you look forward up the sloped deck. Stand in front of turret one to get an up-close and personal look at the barrel of a 16-inch 50 caliber Mark 7. Continue a level above the main deck and see inside the captain’s cabin. Learn about president Franklin D. Roosevelt's custom-built bathtub, the first aboard a USN vessel. It was built for his stay on board because of his inability to take showers due to polio. Next, you'll see The 03 level flag bridge. Hear about the history of the ship and how only IOWA’s 03 level conning tower was armored among the four ships of her class. As you move toward the stern on the 05 level you'll get a closer look at the replicas of the 20mm Phalanx CIWS guns. Continue along the tour route, which will lead you down to a narrow deck behind one of the 5-inch gun mounts. Take a moment to walk around the large fantail when you reach the main deck. The self-guided tour includes free use of the award-winning mobile app and the Vicky the Dog scavenger hunt. This application contains a great deal of information that will enhance your experience.

Great discounted adventure, booked same day! My husband and I went to the Aquarium of the Pacific and to Beach Cruises’ Whale Watching (right next to the aquarium) in one day (4/18/22) before dinner back in OC. Highly recommend both experiences. Pretty easy to purchase this combo. No issues with tickets at the venues. I followed the instructions carefully to book our spots in both experiences. Nice that the aquarium validates the parking so that you get all day parking for the rate of $8. Also nice that the whale watching dock is a short walking distance away from the entrance of the aquarium. Very fun! If you go whale watching, bring a jacket bc it’s cold and windy out on the harbor and open ocean. Also, if you bring a hat, make sure it’s secure so it doesn’t fly away!

There is definitely value for your money here and we appreciated that we could prepay in CDN$ and we liked that there was a good clear website, guide and cancellation policies. You do have to do some pre planning and investigating to make the most of your pass but we never had any issues using the pass and enjoyed Aquarium of the Pacific, Harbour tour, Big Bus LA tour, Madame Tussauds, Walk of Fame, Mann Chinese Theatre, Universal Studios and Knotts Berry Farm.

We had an amazing time going above and below decks, seeing the big guns (from the outside), a number of the 2000+ lb 16.5 inch rounds, the bridge, the 1980s modernizations (including a cruise missle), plus getting to see the kitchen, the captain's in-port quarters, and much more. Good descriptions along the way, and the below decks mess & museum were unexpected surprises. It made for a great half-day.

Super profitable! Possibility to see lots of things to do in Los Angeles and without queuing or even booking for the most part! Brilliant I recommend!

Everything went well with redeeming the selected attractions.
