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.

It is fun to walk through this replica of the original ship. I would strongly recommend also going to the CSS Neuse museum a few blocks away to get a fuller background of this ship's role, and that of other ironclads, in the Civil War. A volunteer was there to answer questions and was very knowledgeable. Expect to spend about 20-30 minutes. Donations are accepted but not asked for.

Visited the area for dinner and enjoyed walking around seeing the sites while waiting on friends. It was a nice area to relax.

Normal visiting hours are Saturday 10:00 to 4:00 with appointments after this time schedule. Foye-staff member at the Kinston-Lenoir Visitor Center- setup my Tuesday morning with the Neuse's guide. As I was approaching the Neuse, the guide was approaching the same time. He asked if I was the person he was to see, with my reply 'Yes'. For about an hour & half we talked about the Neuse-the building of, operation & final destruction of the 1865 actual Neuse. Since I didn't get the guide's name , will call him Jeff. This a 100 % full size replica. The upper inside deck has one forward Brooke 6.4" cannon along with replica shells/ammunition. Jeff explained nine years were needed to raise the total amount of money to build the replica and two & half years to build. Jeff was able to answer all question & explain the ships's crew's functions, sleeping quarters, drilling on the Brooke's cannon for at least fours each day. The 80 plus crew, officers & captain all slept on the lower level, not much room. The only large object is a 1900 steam engine. What is a 1900 engine doing on an 1865 ironclad, this engine was a close fit the Neuse's original engine size. Other lower level highlights are information about the Projectile Room, Power Magazine and fully equipped workshop-all the 1860's tools that an ironclad would need for operating. Jeff explained he would open the Neuse any day just as long an appointment was made one day in advance. To made an off Saturday, stop by or call the Kinston Lenoir County Visitor Center on New Bern Road, Kinston. I thank Jeff for all his time and recommend a visit. Any civil war enthusiast will enjoy a visit, also bring a camera. Excellent lighting on both levels. There is no fee, however a donation is appreicated.
