Hidden Battleship: DATE CANCELED
March 14 @ 12:00 pm - 4:30 pm$50
In light of Governor Cooper’s state of emergency declaration and recommendations regarding large gatherings, and out of an abundance of caution for our visitors, volunteers, and staff, the March 14, 2020, Hidden Battleship is postponed until November 2020 and the Battleship 101 that was scheduled for March 21, 2020, has been canceled. For information on other upcoming events, please check our website and social media.
For the explorer at heart, bring a friend and join us for a unique, behind-the-scenes tour of un-restored areas of the Battleship. The four-hour tour consists of small groups with guides. Guests explore the bow (officers’ country, boatswain locker, and descend to the bottom of the ship), third deck (Radio II, brig, after gyro, storage rooms, ammunition handling, Engineer’s office), Engine room #1, superstructure (Captain’s cabin, armored conning tower, maintenance shops), reefer, aft diesel, and climb inside the fire control tower to the top of the ship. The Azalea Coast Radio Club will be in Radio II to explain their work on the ship’s radio transmitters. It’s the tour that brings out the “Indiana Jones” in all of us, without the snakes!
The program is for adults only (ages 16 and up) and limited to 40 participants. It is not appropriate for those who
have difficulty climbing narrow ladders or over knee-high hatches. Wear warm, comfortable, washable clothing and
sturdy, rubber-soled shoes, and bring a camera!
