Go behind the scenes of one of the most famous attractions along the Cape Fear River with this in-depth tour of Wilmington’s most treasured landmark, the USS Battleship North Carolina. This special one-afternoon-only tour takes participants deep into the depths of the ship, and is an illuminating look into one of the most famous battleships of the World War II era.

Expect to see all the little details of the Battleship North Carolina that everyday visitors never get to see during this special fall afternoon tour that will appeal to history buffs. During the event, attendees will tour the ship from top to bottom, and will uncover a number of unique and amazingly designed areas such as the engineer’s office, the captain’s cabin, the “Marine Compartment,” and even the fire control tower that leads to the top of the ship. Along the way, visitors will learn all about the interworkings of the ship and how all these separate components combine, as they explore nooks and crannies that can’t be seen on any other battleship tour. Best for explorers ages 16 and up, and featuring some climbing components, this tour is a fascinating look into local and national history that won’t soon be forgotten.
