During WWII, because of the ship’s dark painted hull and when she fired her guns it looked like she was breathing fire, the Battleship earned the nickname “The Black Dragon.”

On Friday, Nov. 24, the Battleship Gift Shop will celebrate “Black Dragon Friday.”  Guests will get an extra 10% off all purchases that day at the Gift Shop, open from 10am to 4pm.  The Battleship will be open for tours on Black Dragon Friday from 9:30am to 3pm.
