I absolutely love the battleship. I am a Wilmingtonian and visit the battleship 10-12 times a year. This self-guided tour offers a glimpse of ship life during WWII. There is a 10 minute video that runs every 15 minutes in the front lobby. I highly recommend watching it before you start your tour. Wear comfortable shoes as it is easy to spend a few hours walking through narrow passageways and climbing up and down stairs throughout most levels of the battleship. Be sure to bring a camera, because the photo opportunities are numerous. It should also be noted that the battleship receives no local, state, or federal funds. All monies to run and upkeep the ship comes from admission fees, gift shop profits, donations, and private events (birthday parties and weddings-yes, you could get wed on the decks of the battleship!) So visit and support the battleship for an amazing experience and to ensure it will be here many generations to come!
