Description

Located in Charleston Harbor, this museum is home to the USS Yorktown, nicknamed "The Fighting Lady." This historic battleship played an important role in the Pacific in WWII, sinking the largest battleship ever built. In 1970, Yorktown participated in the recovery of the crew of Apollo 8, shortly before being decommissioned. Moored beside her is USS Laffey, a WWII destroyer, and USS Clamagore, a diesel attack submarine. Many interesting displays and exhibits lie within these vessels, with group tours and overnight stays available. Come experience a piece of US history!
