First Texas Volunteers, in cooperation with Battleship Texas Foundation and Texas Parks & Wildlife, host the Battleship TEXAS Normandy Invasion Tour, a Specialty Hard Hat Tour.
In conjunction with our traditional Hard Hat Tours, the First Texas Volunteers is hosting a specialty tour that is shorter in length and focuses specifically on portions of the ship and its history that pertains to the Invasion of Normandy during World War II. If your have wanted to learn more about the ship and see areas with a guided tour that is not part of the public tour or even our regular Hard Hat Tour then this is your chance. Space is very limited as the group is kept small. Tour departs promptly at 2:00 pm.
Please note: If you would like to book a small group and there are not enough tickets available through the system, please contact us, we can make arrangements to accomodate you.
Guests must be 14 years of age or older. For more information, please visit our website at:
