Event description

Description

Join Independence Seaport Museum for a unique behind-the-scenes tour through history! Explore the depths of Cruiser Olympia and more than 12 areas of the warship normally only reserved for staff. Learn about Olympia's technical details (did you know she was one of the first ships to have a radio communications system installed?), what life was like aboard for her crew, and more!

Tidbits to know before the tour:

  • Check-in will begin at 7:45 a.m. followed by a safety brief before the tour starts at 8 a.m.

  • Close-toed shoes must be worn for the tour.

  • Participants on the tour must be 14 or older, and will be climbing several stairs/ladders. The tour can be physically demanding on the health of the participant.

  • Participants are required to bring a flashlight and gloves; we will provide the hard hat. Participants may also bring a camera if they wish.

  • This tour may end later than 11 a.m.
