The Building History activity for April will be “Making Radios.” This program, free to experience with the purchase of any tour of the Battleship, will take place on Saturday, April 20 from noon to 2pm in the Officers’ Wardroom. Join the Battleship’s Curator, Ryan Symanski, as he’ll lead guests in playing with the components of small radios. Guests will have the opportunity to put components together to make a simple radio.
For the first time, guests can experience this 90-minute guided tour of the Battleship’s engine room. Battleship
guides will show guests where the ship’s engineers controlled the boilers, propulsion shafts, damage control
central and more. Learn how the Battleship achieved up to 33 knots, or 38 mph.
This interactive tour will launch at 1pm on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning Saturday, April 20. The price is
$29.95 for adults and $25.95 for children age 6 – 11, veterans and seniors. The Battleship recommends

Experience an “adult-oriented” tour during the evening hours!
On Wednesday, April 24, at 6pm, this adult tour, led by the Battleship’s Curator, will take guests off the public tour route and will showcase the more “adult-oriented” sailor art created over the years, as well as share some adult stories. Included in this tour is a cold beer or glass of wine – or soft drink – on the Main Deck Portside as we enjoy the skyline of Philadelphia at night!
