Experience the full Bath Iron Works package! The tour begins in the immersive exhibit BIW: Building America’s Navy where you’ll get a high-tech look at the people, processes, and ships of Bath Iron Works and discover why “Bath Built is Best Built.” From there you’ll board the trolley for a ride past the yard. Your guide, a current or former BIW employee, will detail the history of the yard and highlight key elements of the shipyard. Finally, the trolley will 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.
Tours (2.25 hours) run Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 12:30 pm, through October 28.
