It was a great experience to visit USS Kidd. I myself is a tour guide for a Plantation museum in Baton Rouge, hence enjoyed the history of it. The surgery room of the doctors, toilets, the utensils, trunks; all the minute details were interesting!!!❤️

My whole family really enjoyed the USS KIDD. It was so informative. It was great to actually get to go aboard and see what it was like.

Took the tour of this mighty ship and was blown away by the small space and conditions the crew had to live in, you could walk through below and above decks and gain a real insight as to those that sailed in her. Recommended
