By Land & Sea: The Bath Iron Works Story
Experience the full Bath Iron Works package! The tour begins in the new 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, aboard the trolley, your guide, a current or former BIW employee, will detail the history of the yard, interpret the views and work taking place today, 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 the Zumwalt and Arleigh Burke Class destroyers. Passengers also get to enjoy views of the historic Percy and Small Shipyard and two of the Kennebec’s famed lighthouses.
By Land & Sea tours run from mid-May through October. 2019 schedule coming soon!
