Paying tribute to Louisiana natives who have fallen in battle, this ship and nautical complex offer a variety of wartime artifacts and mementoes. The USS Kidd, known as the "Pirate of the Pacific," has been restored to WWII-era condition and invites folks to walk its decks and explore its quarters. The Nautical Center houses military aircraft, an extensive collection of model ships, and other memorabilia. In the vicinity is also Louisiana Memorial Plaza, which displays the names of fallen veterans of American wars.
