Because of precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19, the Battleship is not hosting private events at this time, but we are happy to welcome visitors to tour the Battleship under new procedures in place to protect staff and visitors. Click here for details on visiting the Battleship.

Training exercise using a zipline on Battleship NORTH CAROLINAAs an organization, we have discussed the realities of hosting private rental events for 2021 and decided that we are not able to commit to any date during 2021 for a variety of reasons: varying COVID restrictions, severe and ongoing flooding issues, new construction work/projects, and loss of event staff are only a few of those reasons.

Faced with all of these challenges, and with our primary concern being to remain open and available to daily visitors, we just cannot commit to any date during 2021 for any private event.  The only groups/events that we can host are paranormal investigations, confined space trainings, and military ceremonies (re-enlistments, promotions, etc.).  These events are all self-contained and require no set-up. The nature of these events also allows them to easily practice social distancing and adhere to CDC/state restrictions.

Call 910-399-9111 or email Danielle Wallace for more information, pricing and availability for allowable events.
