The Patriots Point Museum gives naval history fans and curious sightseers of all tastes a glimpse into life on board a world class World War II aircraft carrier and beyond.

Requiring a full day at least to explore all the time-honored exhibits both on and off the water, the Patriots Point Museum gives visitors a thorough overview of South Carolina's military history, while honoring its veterans with a grand salute.
