“Mog Mog was a patch of sand with palm trees. The whole island was about the size of two baseball fields. They would boat us ashore and give each three cans of beer. I didn’t drink so I sold mine for $1.00 a can. We would play baseball, walk around the island or some would fish. It was a great day outing just being away from the ship and our duties.” Watch video and read more on recreation parties at Mog Mog in the latest Battleship Sea Stories blog... http://ow.ly/Qhb0o

Front Street Brewery only has 6 kegs left of the Battleship Pacific Pale Ale. Hop on in before all is gone until next year! Remember for every pint that is sold, they will donate $1 to the Battleship restoration fund.

In the exhibit hall at the Battleship, we gives folks an opportunity to thank veterans for their service by writing on postcards a nice message of gratitude. We then mail them to the VA hospitals in NC. Our visitors are so amazing in the notes that they write. Here's just a sample of how great you are! Know you are making a difference in a veterans life when you do this and we thank you. http://ow.ly/i/bYqTn

Ever wonder what areas of the ship are actually accessible on the tour route? Look at this great diagram of where you get to explore! Yellow is normal tour route and the blue is for special programs. That's a lot of ship!

Want to make a day of it in downtown Wilmington? Park at the Battleship, take a tour of the ship and then hop on the water taxi @ILM_WATER_TOURS for a trip to downtown Wilmington. Shop, eat and play then travel back over to the ship. Cost for the water taxi: Adults $8, Children 3 - 12 years $5, Children under 3 years $1 http://ow.ly/d/3wA8 http://ow.ly/PQFFg

Based on these numbers (not the name of the compartment) where are we at on the ship?

July 1, 2015, was Battleship and Military Appreciation night at the Wilmington Hammerheads FC home game. Through donations at the ticket window and a silent auction of the exclusive camouflage player jerseys, the Hammerheads today presented a check to the Battleship Generations Campaign in the amount of $2,738.78. Thank you to all who helped make this happen

This beautiful egret is looking for breakfast at the battleship this morning. We don't think he will be disappointed as the Cape Fear River has a lot to offer. Maybe we should start naming our birds like we do our alligators?

Enjoyed every inch of that ship, you can visit almost everything. The tour is well structured to take you through all the ship. The visit takes at least 2 hours, but if you read some of the descriptive texts then it is up to 3 hours. Good for all ages.

I have toured several museum Battleships throughout the United States and must say the USS North Carolina provides the most accessible tour among them all. While not the largest museum battleship of the rooms accessible to the public there are few that feature barriers to keep you from touching and photographing the various rooms aboard. Besides the radio room and a few decorated office quarters every room on the tour is open to explore. Only problem is poor crowd control and parents allowing their children to run free below deck. It's an accident waiting to happen.

Awesome experience. While the ship is cool, take time to read some of the sailors' recollections posted throughout. Very insightful.

The history as well as the self tour. It's amazing how the crew was able to move around in it.
