About Battleship IOWA

Entering service more than 70 years ago, the USS Iowa deployed to the South Pacific in the early years of World War II.  The iconic battleship served with distinction in that war, and later during the Korean War.  In the 1990s, as the Berlin Wall crumbled, the IOWA concluded her active duty.  Battleship IOWA now serves as a non-profit historic naval ship museum and is supported solely by individual donations, corporate foundations, and philanthropic organizations. Forged in war and a guardian of peace, the proud ship is the sentinel of the Los Angeles Waterfront. IOWA’s teak decks and steel bulkheads echo the words and deeds of history, having carried upon them three U.S. Presidents, six of the nine American five-star military leaders, countless foreign dignitaries, and thousands of her own heroic IOWA sailors. Visitors are awed by the IOWA’s proud legacy as one of the fastest and most powerful ships to ever sail the world’s oceans.  The Battleship IOWA Museum is open to the public daily, except Thanksgiving and Christmas, from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. For information about special events, group tours, educational programs, and Naval retirement flag service, visit
