It protected a President in World War I, saw action at D-Day during World War II and is the last surviving U.S. battleship where such history is still afloat. Permission to come aboard, granted.

My son and I went on a self guided tour and enjoyed every minute. There is a ton of good information. Occasionally we bumped into park rangers who were very knowledgeable and friendly. We spent about 3 hours in all, but you could finish it in 1 1/2 bours if you rushed it.

Been on the Texas many times since I could walk. The old girl holds historical mystery that is tangible when you step on board at any age. We all need to be vigilant in keeping her shipshape! Please participate in all continuing benifit activities to restore this gem in our Lone Star State!

Not only was this an impressive warship, it was also an incredibly old machine. I was surprised to learn that the USS Texas is over 100 years old. So impressive!

Took a visit of This in July. It reminded me of when I was around 8 and visited the USS Lexington in Corpus Christi with my parents. A very neat experience even again as an adult, If you are into those sort of things. I love historical things. A great thing for kids to keep a summer informative, if you have kids. I think that is why my parents did it. Maybe not in JULY THOUGH, In Texas. :) The only downfall was the amount of construction it had at the time.

I went as a teenager in the 60's and took my kids in the 80's and grandchildren in 2000's. Great place to share history with family and friends. You stand on the ship and you can almost visualize how is must of been during World War II. During a visit in the 60's I heard a man tell his family. "The last time I saw the Battleship Texas, she was firing over my head as we were landing." That statement has stuck with me for 55 years. If you haven't visited San Jacinto Park and walked on the decks of the Battleship Texas you are missing out!!
