The $6 tour includes unique and detailed descriptions of more than 110 exhibits. The commentary includes interviews from veterans who served on the USS YORKTOWN and pilots who flew the planes that are on display. It also incorporates sound effects that bring the experience to life.

“This tour is perfect for visitors who want to peel back another layer of the USS YORKTOWN and really dig deep into its remarkable history,” said Executive Director Mac Burdette. “The stories told by our heroes during the recording really help to personalize the ship for our visitors.”

The audio tour is conducted through a headset and is self-paced. The programming was developed by Patriots Point museum curators and Dream Vision Entertainment (DVE). In 2013, DVE helped create one of the museum’s most popular attractions, the interactive USS LAFFEY Gun Mount Exhibit.

Guests can purchase the new audio tour at the information desk located inside the USS YORKTOWN. Patriots Point is in Mount Pleasant, S.C. directly across the harbor from downtown Charleston. Click here for admission details.
