August 8 @ 12:30 pm - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:30 pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, repeating until October 25, 2019
Experience the full Bath Iron Works package! The tour begins in the immersive exhibit BIW: Building America’s Navy where you’ll experience a high-tech look at the people, processes, and ships of Bath Iron Works and discover why “Bath Built is Best Built.” Then, board the trolley for a ride past the yard. Your guide, a current or former BIW employee, will detail the history of the yard, interpret the views, and highlight key elements of the shipyard. The trolley will then drop you off to board the museum’s cruise boat Merrymeeting for a one hour cruise featuring spectacular views of modern shipbuilding construction and a close-up look at naval destroyers in the water. Passengers also get to enjoy views of the historic Percy and Small Shipyard and two of the Kennebec’s famed lighthouses. *Please note that due to security restrictions, this tour is not permitted to enter the BIW shipyard.
Tours (2.25 hours) run Monday through Friday at 12:30 pm, May 20 through October 25.
