Plan Your Visit to Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum

Mayci Rechner Jan 10, 2022

Whether you’re planning a vacation or stay-cation, Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum should be on the top of your itinerary. We are proud to share more than 1,000,000 square feet of exhibits, including the USS Yorktown, USS Laffey and Vietnam Experience. Reservations are not required, but we encourage visitors to utilize touch-less ticketing. Buying tickets online allows visitors to skip the line at the ticket window. Even if your plans change, all online tickets can be used within a year of purchase.

Feel confident in your visit with our enhanced safety measures. We highly encourage visitors to wear face coverings. Expansive spaces make social distancing easy and signage throughout Patriots Point encourages visitors to keep six feet apart. The museum also utilizes ultraviolet light air purifiers to sanitize the air in climate-controlled exhibits. The custodial staff works to ensure public areas are cleaned, and more than a dozen hand sanitizing stations are located throughout the museum ships, gift shop, and Vietnam Experience.

If you are looking to go “behind the scenes” and in areas not included in self-guided admission, consider adding a guided Captain’s Tour to your plan. Click here for more information and to check availability.

Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum is currently open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and weekends from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The last tickets are sold at 4 p.m.


Operation Overnight, the program that allows groups to sleep aboard the historic USS Yorktown is booking now! The program is currently operating at less than 50% capacity. Assigned berthing (sleeping) areas are limited to members of the same group and are sanitized between reservations.

    Does the daily ticket price allow unlimited on/off reentry to the Yorktown? Or is it just good for one entry? We are planning a visit next week.

      Hello Edwin,
      Our tickets are good for one day admission. You are welcome to come and go throughout at day, just make sure you hold on to your ticket for reentry to the museum. We look forward to your visit!
