USS Kidd & Veterans Memorial Museum

USS Kidd & Veterans Memorial Museum Review

This World War II survivor has been restored to its V-J Day configuration. A self-guided tour takes in more than 50 inner spaces of this ship and also the separate Nautical Center museum. Among the museum's exhibits are articles from the United States' 175 Fletcher-class destroyers, a collection of ship models, and a restored P-40 fighter plane hanging from the ceiling. The Louisiana Memorial Plaza lists more than 7,000 Louisiana citizens killed during combat, including the 127 citizens killed in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. An A-7E Corsair plane pays tribute to the veterans of the Vietnam War.
