Across the river from downtown Wilmington, the Battleship North Carolina is a memorial and living classroom. Learn the history of the WWII-era fast battleship ship and the stories of those who lived and died on it. On average, visitors spend two hours touring the restored ship. Visitors can choose between a self-guided tour or various guided group tours.
The Battleship is funded by Friends of the Battleship North Carolina, a non-profit organization.
