The U.S.S. Battleship Memorial Museum contains the largest collection of U.S.S. Tennessee memorabilia in the world. The ship was one of the most commended battleships in history, fighting in more battles and firing more volleys than any other ship in WWII. She was one of few ships at Pearl Harbor to return fire during the Japanese attack and was instrumental in the Pacific theatre during WWII fighting at Okinawa, Iwo Jima, Saipan, and the Philippines, just to name a few.
