Description

Moored in quiet dignity and majesty the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA, across the river from downtown Wilmington, beckons visitors to walk her decks. Envision the daily life and fierce combat her crew faced in the Pacific Theatre during World War II.

From all across our Nation they came, young men who had grown up in the crucible of the Great Depression and now determined to serve their Country in its time of need. These are the men whose stories you will encounter through their oral histories, photographs, and mementos as you experience the Ship and the exhibits.

Step back in time and let history come alive through the crews' stories. Imagine yourself steering the ship, starting her engines or even firing the guns. JOIN THE CREW and be a part of Battleship history at the Battleship NORTH CAROLINA!

North Carolina's most historic site. Great place to bring the family and learn some history about our country.

A really powerful experience. I've gone on a few of the retired WW2/Korea vessels and there's always such a feel of history and of the blood and sweat that went into operating such a massive ship. I recommend this for pretty much everyone, but it can be difficult to get around the ship. It's just the way they were designed, so walkways can be narrow, and stairs can be very steep.
