We’re open

The Battleship NORTH CAROLINA is open to visitors with new procedures in place to help ensure the safety of staff and visitors, including

  • Reconfiguring the tour route to include only the Ship’s main deck and above, and offering only self-guided tours.
  • Limiting the number of visitors allowed in the gift shop and on the Ship itself, and closing the visitors center.
  • Welcoming only non-cash (credit card) payments.
  • Installing hand sanitizer and hand washing stations.
  • Increasing the frequency of cleaning high-touch public areas and restrooms.
  • Using protective barriers at sales desks.

Adult admission is reduced to $10, with all visitors offered the group, child, military or ADA rate as applicable. Visitors will be welcomed back with a receipt within a year, after other areas of the Ship reopen.

Effective Saturday, June 27th the Battleship is complying with the North Carolina Governor’s Executive Order #147 which extends the Phase 2 order and enacts new measures to save lives in the Covid-19 Pandemic. Visitors to the Battleship must cover your nose and mouth with a cloth covering. Non-medical masks, bandannas or scarves may be worn. We appreciate your cooperation to protect our employees and other guests.

Visitors are encouraged to follow the “Three Ws” as outlined by the N.C. Dept. of Health and Human Services – WEAR a cloth face covering; WAIT at least six feet away from others; and WASH hands frequently or use hand sanitizer. If you are experiencing symptoms of illness, we ask that you postpone your visit.
