BIW: Building America’s Navy

New in 2018, this permanent exhibit, produced in collaboration with Bath Iron Works, provides an immersive, high-tech look at the people, processes, and ships of BIW. Visitors get an exclusive look at the yard’s cutting-edge technology and innovative approaches to design through a number of interactive elements including a touch-sensitive wall illustrating ship design and simulated CIC screens. Head to the new theatre space to see what goes on behind the gates with a behind-the-scenes video of the shipbuilding process.

To help support the exhibit, the museum is offering the opportunity to honor a shipbuilder, sailor, or anyone with ties to BIW with a commemorative plaque. Plaques are available in two sizes: 5 x 3 inches and 10 x 8 inches for donations of $250 and $500, respectively. The custom plaques will be permanently on display on the exterior of the exhibit, so that they are accessible to the public outside of museum hours.
