Battleship Cove


Battleship Cove located in Fall River, Massachusetts is the world’s largest collection of historic naval ships.

In 1964, the citizens of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, including over 6000 school children, banded together to save the battleship, USS Massachusetts, from being scrapped, and bring her to the waterfront of historic Fall River on June 12, 1965. More than 500,000 people lined the shores of Narragansett Bay and the Taunton River that day to welcome their ship to the South Coast with cheers of jubilation and well wishes.

During her dedication on August 14, 1965, the battleship’s historic significance was further recognized as she was made the official World War II Memorial for the Commonwealth and opened as a public museum. Over the years, she has been joined by the destroyer, Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., the submarine Lionfish, PT 617 and PT 796, and the Soviet built missile corvette, Hiddensee to form the largest collection of historic naval ships in the world, Battleship Cove, America’s Fleet Museum.

Battleship Cove is an incredible journey through our countries past for the whole family with fun events and programs to honor the history of these historic National Landmarks and the brave individuals who served aboard them.
