Spend the night on the USS Iowa, The Last of the Battleships.
The USS Iowa may have been the first of the Iowa-class battleships to be commissioned, but she was the last battleship to retire permanently.
Once called the "Battleship of Presidents" (having hosted FDR, Reagan, and George H.W. Bush), the USS Iowa had the biggest guns on any U.S. Navy ship, used primarily for anti-aircraft missions: nine 16-inch guns mounted on three stacked turrets on the flight deck (capable of carrying 2000 tons of firepower).
Join Atlas Obscura for a rare and immersive experience aboard the USS Iowa, now known as the Battleship Iowa Museum. In a "sleepover" excursion arranged exclusively for the Los Angeles Obscura Society-and the ONLY civilian adult group EVER to receive permission to do so-we will gather on the permanently moored ship in the late afternoon to receive our safety briefing, get settled into our bunks, and chow down on an early dinner in the mess hall.
We'll then take an extensive tour of the massive warship-which measures 887 feet (about 0.15 nautical miles) in length-through staterooms, command centers, the main galley, and other areas that show what "life at sea" was like for sailors in the Pacific Fleet from the 1940s through the 1980s. And as a special bonus, we'll even gain exclusive access to some areas of this great, gray lady that are not currently open to the public during regular tours.
After a good night's sleep, we'll wake up to breakfast being served and a special Q&A session with actual veterans-some of whom served in the U.S. Navy and on this very same battleship.
Don't miss this is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to really experience authentic routines and customs aboard the notorious "Big Stick" of the U.S. Navy, which has retired at the former home of the United States battle fleet from (1919-1940) and, more recently, the Long Beach Naval Shipyard.
NOTE: It is always a good idea to verify date, time, location and other information prior to going.
