Welcome Aboard the USS SLATER!
Tour the only restored World War II Destroyer Escort afloat in America and National Historic Landmark!
During World War II 563 Destroyer Escorts battled Nazi U-Boats on the North Atlantic protecting convoys of men and supplies. In the Pacific, they stood first in line to defend naval task forces from Kamikaze attacks.
Step back in time. Return to 1945 aboard USS SLATER. See how Sailors worked, hear the sounds of a living ship, touch a piece of American history, and walk the decks where hundreds of Sailors have walked before.
The fully-guided tour of the ship takes at least one hour. It will require climbing ladders and walking through tight spaces. Comfortable walking or athletic shoes and casual dress are recommended. Large bags and strollers are not permitted on the ship.
USS SLATER is open to the public April through November, Wednesday through Sunday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
