Guests will go through the ship’s 6in armored deck into the citadel that protects the most essential components of the ship. Once inside the citadel, guests will see the inside of a 16in gun turret and the Mk 8 electro-mechanical analog computer that fired these guns over the ship’s fifty years of service. Guests will also take a look into the rarely seen gun director that helped aim these guns.
