Located in the heart of scenic downtown Baton Rouge, Louisiana, she is the centerpiece of a memorial which serves to honor the men and women of our American armed forces. Through these pages, you will take a step back in time and learn about their sacrifices for the freedoms we enjoy today.

    My dad served aboard the Kidd 1945-46. It was the greatest treat of his elder years to revisit her in 1999. The hospitality of the staff there was unequal in giving him the red carpet treatment. Dad passed away in 2012 from the ravages of Parkinson's disease at the age of 85, but took the day visiting the Kidd once again to his grave. Thank you so much for preserving this wonderful ship!

    Well worth the time when you're in Baton Rouge. The museum staff was both friendly and knowledgeable.

    Nice, a bit short but you can't make a boat bigger :)
