USS Texas, I think. It appears to have the old casement gun positions that I think that era ship had.

I'll admit to looking it up, but the picture is on Wikipedia.

Still in process of being totally restored yet still open to public. They even have overnight facilities available.

The dishwasher broke down.

Either that or the captain wanted a completely 'dry' ship before entering combat.

Last I heard she would be high and dry after they're done as her hull is really in no shape to be in water, and it can't be fixed. At least not economically enough.

Damn I wish I lived near the coast where old and huge museum ships can be visited, but I am content with woods and hills too. I was at Wilhelmshaven and Dutch navy museum Den Helder, they have only smaller ships and subs, but nothing bigger than a DD.. But both can be recommended esp. the Dutch one (a pretty big sub you can crawl through and nice museum!). Also Tank museum Munster plus army and airforce museums in Netherlands (base Soesterberg)

Well I guess it depends on your view of huge. Yes we have the two cruisers - HMS Belfast (London) and HMS Caroline (Belfast) - and of course we have the old girl HMS Victory (Portsmouth) but we don't have any battleships or carriers

I visited HMS Victory a couple of months back and she looks a bit sorry at the moment as she is undergoing some pretty extensive restoration works. Her masts have been taken down to relieve pressure on the hull but the plan is that they will be returned as part of the project and she will be returned to normal and sit in all her imperious majesty at the home of the Royal Navy

Also in Portsmouth is M33 a monitor used for shore bombardment at Gallipoli, Salonika and in northern Russia. HMS Alliance is a old diesel sub at the submarine museum across in Gosport.

Also in Pompey is HMS Warrior, the world's largest warship when launched, the RN's first ironclad (La Gloire was the world's first iron clad warship). She was as revolutionary in her time as Dreadnought was nearly 50 years later.

When I was in college we had the ability to save the USS Indiana, which might have been preserved at Evansville Indiana where they presently have a restored LST and a small war museum, but it went to the scrappers.

Oh, well.

There is also Chatham, which I've not yet visited. HMS Chevalier there. Granted, only a DD but WW2 vintage.

This last bit is critical. If Pearl Harbor proved anything, it was there wasn't a hull ever created that couldn't be fixed if you threw enough resources at it. And that was in the 1940s.

I'm just home from a 2 week tour of many museums in UK: HMS Belfast, Imp War Museum-main, Duxford, Bletchley, Bovington and a few days in Portsmouth. My hat is off to the level of attention and funding these venerable institutions receive in UK. The Victory for example must have employed scores of folks with upkeep for several hundred years now. I was sizably impressed at each of these sights and encourage everyone to make the same trip.

Chatham dockyard (as opposed to Chatham itself) is well worth a visit. It is where the Victory was built and the dockyard museum and rope works are Good. You can as Obvert says also see HMS Cavalier, a war emergency Ca class destroyer that was finally decommissioned in the late 60s or early 70s. Late enough to be given a SeaCat mounting. By all accounts she was able to outrun more modern ships right till the end of her service. You can also see an Oberon class diesel sub and more unusually HMS Gannet, a Victorian sloop
