Danielle was our tour guide. She was phenomenal! Very informative. She absolutely knew just about everything there was to know about the house, the family, trial etc. She was able to answer all questions...even the curve balls :). Very good.

Battleship Cove

Reviewed By Mike R - Bridgewater, New Jersey

The most amazing display of naval firepower you will ever see. Battleship, Cruiser, Destroyer, PT Boats, Submarine and Cruiser. Definitely worth a visit. You can find coupons on line to limit the cost,. I don't think that kids under 8 should be visiting here. There are steep stairs and small hatches to crawl through.It will take a day and a half to see everything in detail so allow some time.....but definitely tour this site!

Oak Grove Cemetery

Reviewed By estimator51 - Fall River, Massachusetts

Though on a rainy day, the grounds were very well kept and the burial site was prepared well. The construction on one of the entry gates was not convenient, but what must be done for upkeep, must be done. Everything went smoothly, with the groundskeepers leading the way from the entry gate we used.

USS Massachusetts (Big Mamie)

Reviewed By Andrew M - Jacksonville, Florida

Bring comfortable shoes because this ship is huge and there's a lot of walking, climbing and exploring inside. Give yourself ample time to explore everything without rushing. There's a cafeteria with good food located on board this ship. There's no a/c in the majority of the ship so wear comfortable clothes since you're gonna sweat and be warm unless you decide to visit on a cool day. Toilets are conveniently located near the cafeteria. There's lots of history to explore on board and definitely recommended for all military history buffs and naval enthusiasts. Even the kids enjoyed it!

Fall River Historical Society

Reviewed By tdrs73 - Corning, New York

The historical society is full of beauty and interesting things that one will enjoy. The curator, Mr. Michael Martins, is extremely knowledgeable and I could have spent hours discussing architecture, history, art, etc. with him. I would recommend visiting the historical society to obtain accurate information about the Lizzie Borden Case. I've been several times and Christmas time is the most amazing. They decorate the museum in such grandeur and meticulous uniqueness. I highly recommend this as a stop on your trip to Fall River.

Narrows Center for the Arts

Reviewed By Lori-Ellen S - West Greenwich, Rhode Island

I love this place so much. The acoustics are fabulous and seeing music here is such a great experience - BYOB, bring food, sit with friends and enjoy! It's such a special place! The only thing is what others have mentioned - I truly wish they would get rid of the poles in the front of the stage so there is nothing blocking views. Perhaps a large beam??

Children's Museum of Greater Fall River

Reviewed By Arthur C - Westport, Ma

We cannot reflect another place that returns to old fashioned fun where kids can do about anything, from painting to playing music on various instruments.

This is a wonderland of various event rooms each specializing in a different kid setting. Water rooms to color rooms with everything in between.

We enjoy a family annual membership that allows us to visit as often as we want without additional charge .

The staff are super friendly and they keep the place spotless clean.


A grandparents dream for us.

Marine Museum

The Marine Museum has an extensive collection of marine artifacts dealing with the local history and seafaring in general. There are models of the local steamships from the Fall River Line, models of a wide variety of naval vessels and displays about the Titanic along with the detailed history of them. If you have any interest in the sea or boating it is a worthwhile stop when in the area.
