Preservation, Education, and Commemoration of Naval History
Visit Your Local Battleship!
Are you planning to see the new “Battleship” movie? We just wanted to remind you that there are numerous battleships open to the public around the country. Here’s a selection of photos of them in action and on display as museum ships. Get out to visit them, and if you have the time, sign up to be a volunteer - they are always looking for help!
Visit the Historic Naval Ships Association website to learn more.
