New Cold War USS Laffey Combat Information Center (CIC) Exhibit Opening
June 25, 2016
Starting Saturday, June 25, a new high-tech exhibit aboard the USS Laffey at Patriots Point will takes visitors behind the curtain of the Cold War for a tension-filled portrayal of a close encounter with a Russian submarine during the 1970s, when the threat of a third world war loomed over the country.
This immersive new exhibit experience is located inside the USS Laffey’s Combat Information Center where the warship’s air and surface radar and sonar equipment were operated during the Cold War.
The new exhibit involves holograms and surround sound that will give guests true insight into what it was like to serve on the USS Laffey during the Cold War. There is no additional charge (beyond general admission) to experience this exhibit.
