It's Wikipedia, but it should be a good starting list.

Try the Historical Studies and Discussion section on the forum or ask around. You maybe find tidbits of info here and there about which museums to visit.

Judging by where you live (Tuscon, Arizona), I'd say try the west coast.  Look at USS Midway in San Diego or USS Iowa in Los Angeles.

Mr. Kivarvexis I was hoping to ascertain the which ships and museums to visit before they become lost to time and lack of funding. Also to find the one with most enjoyable to visit. Thought of all communities this would be the one to ask in is world inclusive so has wide spectrum of interests. Thank you kind sirs

Thank you Mr. Warframe. I travel almost seven to eight months a year. I live in Tucson January to May. The home I own is in Yokosuka JP. Work requires travel all over Asia and RU. Hope to see more of Europe but work seldom takes me west of Poland.

Well the list would be the place to start to see what is in reach of you. The suggestion from Dictonary of checking the History forum here, should help narrow the search for you some. Good luck. I've seen the USS North Carolina and it was a visit well worth my time.

Have not seen her but visited Aurora yesterday in Saint Petersburg a well-kept ship happy to say. My home in Yokosuka is just 11km to Mikasa park. Visited New Jersey two years ago. Was a very beautiful ship. Nice Dosens for tour. very informative and spent extra time with me and my English difficulties.

First: You are super polite and really nice. This is a rare trait on any forum so I thought I'd call you out as a reasonably cool person.

 

Second: if you do get a chance to go further west in Europe, HMS Belfast in London is a good visit. In Poland itself there's Blyskawica, her most famous destroyer.

Thank you for your kindness. I am at your service Mr. Warframe. Japanese saying. しょしんわするべからず (shoshin wasuru bekarazu).We should not forget our beginner’s spirit. to Japanese would mean similar to if this is correct translation.( humility of starting something new).

Anyways. If you are in the San Francisco Bay Area, check out the USS Hornet (CV-12). I haven't gone there yet but I am planning to do so in the near future.

Ah. That USS Hornet that was sunk was CV-8. This USS Hornet, CV-12, was named in honor of the previous USS Hornet.

I hope I'll be able to visit USS Texas soon. Indeed, she is in dire need of TLC.

Yep. She is certainly not in a worthy condition for her historical importance.

Mz Suzukaze (san) I would have not thought a KM unterseeboot could get into Great Lake amazing. I will make a point to see it. Will be attending advanced training at the University of Michigan if I ever finish Ph.D. which is not looking real well at this moment.

Actually. U-505 was captured in the North Atlantic in 1944 and was moved afterwards to the Museum of Science and Industry.
