Battle Ship Texas

The Battleship Texas is one of the older warships that belonged to the US Navy. Today it is a floating museum in the channel waters off the coast of Houston. This is part of the Texas State Parks network and being a member of the state parks I got free entry. The battle ship is meant to give a sneak preview of how warships operated and housed their officers and sailors. Who ate in silver cutlery and who ate on steel plates, etc, how the guns operated, where ammunition was stored, who did the laundry, etc. It is an educative exhibit for those who are not aware of the workings of the Navy. For us it was another state park visit and learning history of this country, one site at a time.

Here are few pictures of the battle ship.
