The USS Iowa is currently in Richmond (CA) Harbor for restoration work, prior to a permanent move to San Pedro for exhibition. It's open weekends for visitors. Right now one can walk on the foredeck. Soon, I'm told, the bridge will be open for visitors. Latest word is that it will remain in Richmond until "April or May".
One of the best parts of visiting this battleship is the opportunity to talk to veterans who served on this ship, or similar. Range of largest guns = 24+ miles. 3,000 men served at a time, from World War II up until the Gulf War.
