      Hi-
       
      We wanted to let your group know that Battleship USS IOWA is open for tours on the weekends for a brief period of time at Pier 3 at the Port of Richmond before our departure to Los Angeles.
       
      Pacific Battleship Center, the non-profit organization that is bringing USS IOWA back to life is hosting the Battleship Expo at the Port of Richmond. The expo includes a visit on board USS IOWA and access to exhibits that include a short film on the battleship, 16” shells, a Sheridan tank & half-track displayed by the Military Vehicle Foundation, the Blue Angels F-4 Phantom flight simulator from Pacific Coast Air Museum, and numerous other exhibits. The Battleship Expo entrance donation is $10 per adult, $5 per child 12 years or older, and children 11 & under are free.
       
      Currently the forward portion of the main deck with a view of turrets 1 & 2 is open to guests. As work is completed, additional exhibits and areas on the battleship may be open to the public for visitation. It is encouraged to return to see the progress.
       
      Reservations are not required. USS IOWA is located at Terminal 3, 1411 Harbour Way, Richmond CA. The Battleship Expo can be accessed via the northeast gate on Saturdays and Sundays during the hours of 10am to 4pm.
