Among the world’s remaining battleships, Texas is notable for being the first US battleship to become a permanent museum ship, the first battleship declared to be a US National Historic Landmark, and is the only remaining World War I–era dreadnought battleship. She is also noteworthy for being one of only seven remaining ships and the only remaining capital ship to have served in both World Wars.
