Main Expo Footprint at the Battleship IOWA

250 S. Harbor Blvd.
San Pedro, CA 95236 United States

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.

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 our 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.

A day on this marvel of engineering will create memories that you and your family will treasure for years to come.
