Groups should allow 2 – 2 1/2 hours for the self-guided tour. Once onboard, the group can enter gun turrets, view crew’s quarters, sick bay, an engine room and much more. There are 12 decks open for touring. The main deck of the Battleship is handicapped accessible. The group will also enjoy watching a 15-minute film in the Uptake Theater featuring former WWII USS Alabama crewmen. After touring the Alabama, head down to the 36,000 sq. ft. Aircraft Pavilion, dedicated to the 29 Medal of Honor recipients from the State of Alabama. In here, the group can view aircraft such as the A-12 “Blackbird” Spy Plane and a P51-D Mustang Redtail, the type of plane flown by the valiant Tuskegee Airmen. Then inspect other aircraft, a Vietnam PBR boat, and wonderful exhibits. Don’t forget to take a ride on the Flight Simulator. Great for the young and young at heart! Submarine USS DRUM is your next stop, also designated a National Historic Landmark. She can be viewed from every vantage point, inside and out. Be sure to visit the inspiring Vietnam and Korean War Memorials also located in the park.
