Built by a shipbuilder by the original specifications. Incredible work. You will enjoy more if you visit the CSS Neuse museum before visiting CSS Neuse II. It is fun to walk through the ship and put things in prospective to the history you learn at the museum. Visiting hours are on Saturday only unless you make an appointment.

The replica is great, and the staff are knowledgeable and friendly! The area was clean and well maintained. I recommend visiting the CSS Neuse Museum first. Easy, short walk from the ship to the museum.

Once upon a time, the people of North Carolina built ironclads to patrol the rivers and sounds against Federal raiders. In 2002, the people of Kinston NC decided that it was time to build another one. The Neuse II is based on the design of the original Confederate Ironclad "CSS Neuse" what was built on the Neuse River and steamed the nearby waters. The Neuse II is built of stout timbers and resides on blocks near the rivers edge. Definitely worth a look if you are near Kinston. The exhibit is open on Saturday's but you can see her exterior anytime. Make sure you double the experience with a visit to the nearby "CSS Neuse & Gov. Caswell Memorial" state historic site where the remains of the original CSS Neuse are displayed.

An interesting exhibit. One needs to know the history of the ship to appreciate it. A visit to the Kinston Visiter center is very helpful.

This Friday visit involved a 1 1/2 hour detour from our route, but this is the ONLY full-size reconstruction of a Confederate ironclad in the world. Approaching the center of town, in a small park, there looms a Confederate ironclad up on dry land! The ship interior is open only on Saturdays, but I was just content just to get pictures of the outside. Well, the ironclad was open to prep it for a breakfast on the following morning. These gentlemen allowed me to come aboard and see their ship. What a ship! It is beautiful pine wood interior and hull, and the pivoting cannons were a great innovation. It might be a little bit out of the way, but this is something that every Civil War buff should see!

Being inside of a replica of the CSS Neuse gave you a true sense of what the Naval officers and enlisted endured during their time in an ironclad. Riverboats on the Neuse had to be problematic so it only stood to reason this could be a challenge, and so it was! Seeing is believing.
