USS KIDD is a WWII Fletcher-class destroyer, and National Historic Landmark, restored to 1945 configuration. Visitors may tour through 80% of the ship, on 5 levels. The shoreside museum includes a P-40 aircraft, military ship models, WWI trench exhibit, the Louisiana Veterans Hall of Honor, and traveling exhibits relating to Louisiana's and her citizens' military contributions. The Louisiana Memorial Plaza and a Corsair A-7E jet are adjacent to the museum.

Note: The USS KIDD Veterans Museum is temporarily moving to Houma for repairs projected to last through 2025. The museum will remain open throughout repairs. Patrons are invited to visit the museum's website for virtual tours, too.
