Tanks, boats, planes, memorials, and artillery dot the scenic surroundings at Battleship Memorial Park. Since the Park is dedicated to those who served in all branches of the United States Armed Forces, you will find artifacts from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, and Coast Guard.
Several iconic tanks from World War II, Korea, and the Vietnam Wars are included in the collection. You’ll find a M-26 Pershing tank, a M-4 Sherman, M-48A 1 Patton, and a M-60A 1 tank. Also included is a T-55 Russian/Iraqi tank from Desert Storm.
Various artillery pieces include the M42A 1 Duster, several 5” 38 caliber gun mounts, a M1A1 120mm Skysweeper, a 155 mm Field Piece, and personnel carriers.
Although the Park features Battleship USS ALABAMA (BB-60) and Submarine USS DRUM (SS-228), both National Historic Landmarks, three other vessels are included in the Park. Outside, at the Coast Guard Memorial are a 26 foot Motor Surf Launch and a 41 foot Utility Boat –Large (UTB). Inside the Aircraft Pavilion is a Vietnam-era River Patrol Boat (PBR).
