Your tour will begin aboard the USS ALABAMA where students may watch a 15-minute film in the Battleship Theater featuring WWII USS ALABAMA crewmen. As you explore the ship, students can enter gun turrets, view crew’s quarters, the brig, sick bay, the galley, an engine room and much more. There are 12 decks open for touring aboard the USS ALABAMA. The main deck is handicapped accessible and our restrooms are located there.
After touring the USS ALABAMA, students can head down to the Medal of Honor Aircraft Pavilion where they can view historic airplanes such as the A-12 “Blackbird” spy plane, a gull-winged Corsair, and a P51-D Mustang Red Tail, an airplane like the one flown by the valiant Tuskegee Airmen. See Marine One, the Presidential helicopter, the Red Ball Express supply truck, a PBR boat, and many other exciting exhibits. Don’t forget to take a ride on the Flight Simulator (additional fees apply).
Submarine USS DRUM will be your next stop. Experience how her crew of 72 worked and lived aboard this historic submarine. The USS DRUM may be viewed from every vantage point, inside and out.
Before you leave the Park, we invite you to visit the 9/11 Fallen Heroes Monument, the Vietnam and Korean War Memorials, and our incredible array of outdoor exhibits on the grounds.
