Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum will operate under an adjusted seasonal schedule starting Monday, September 13. The museum’s operating hours will change to 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekends. The ticket office will close every day at 4 p.m.
Starting Tuesday, September 7, the guided Captain’s Tour will be offered Friday through Sunday.
Patriots Point is partnering with the 9/11 Silent Walk to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the September 11th terrorist attacks. A Remembrance Ceremony will take place at 11:30 AM on the flight deck of the USS Yorktown. The museum will also offer hands-on activities for children to reflect on the heroic actions of the firefighters and police officers who responded to the scene on September 11, 2001. Both of these events are open to the public and included in the price of admission.
Local food trucks will continue to visit Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum this fall, offering savory and sweet options daily for lunch. Patriots Point is also preparing to relaunch the overnight program. Groups will learn what it means to live like a sailor and sleep in the same berthing areas as the crews who served onboard the USS Yorktown in the 1940s and after. Patriots Point will announce soon when groups can begin booking overnight stays.
