Board a historic battleship and see history come to life before your eyes. Named one of the best exhibits to see with your kids by CBS Local, the Battleship Iowa Museum is the West Coast's only battleship open to the public. Walk the wooden decks and check out the guns, missile decks, bridge, mess areas and the world famous Captain's Cabin -- with the only bathtub installed on a battleship for a president. Known as "The Battleship of Presidents," Iowa has hosted three: Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush. You'll also get an up-close look at a Korean War-era Piasecki HUP-2 Retriever helicopter, fully restored and sitting on Iowa's flight deck. The Battleship Iowa is located at the L.A. Waterfront, former home to the US Navy Battleship fleet prior to World War II and an area rich in maritime history.
