Enjoy a “hands-on” history lesson at The Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum, while taking in the views of historic Charleston Harbor . With six tour routes, memorials and exhibits, Patriots Point is the fourth largest naval museum in the country – and one of only two museums with more than two ships. It is ranked the state’s number one heritage attraction.
The USS Yorktown was the tenth aircraft carrier to serve in the United States Navy. The ship was commissioned on April 15, 1943, and participated significantly in the Pacific Offensive that began in late 1943 and ended with the defeat of Japan in 1945. The Yorktown received the Presidential Unit Citation, and earned 11 battle stars for service in World War II. Much of the Academy Award-winning (1944) documentary The Fighting Lady was filmed on board the Yorktown.
Enjoy spectacular views of the harbor, a scrumptious brunch, special guests, and a tribute to our veterans in attendance.
Dive into the supernatural with one of Bulldog Tour’s Ghost Tour the “Haunted Yorktown” tours and hear the stories of the American Heroes who lived, died, and are still rumored to be on board today. This tour gives you
exclusive night time access to areas of the ship that are closed to the
public, including access to the flight deck after dark.
Patriot’s Point is located at 40 Patriots Point Road in Mount Pleasant.
