The last time there was an extensive tour of the Battleship Texas it was between 2011 and 2012. The Volunteer Organization has organized a tour of the Battleship Texas which ran from October through early May.
If you have been curious about what the interior of the 20th Century dreadnought looks like, the equipment, construction, operational history, and innovations, this exclusive tour which has been tagged Hard Hat Tours can help you to satisfy your curiosity in three and a half hours.
The Texas BB-35 has become a museum. The ship is open for public viewing at the San Jacinto State Historic Site near Texas from 10 am to 5 pm.
However, there are days when the ship museum is closed from viewing including Christmas Eve, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
What The Tour Offers?
Those who were part of the Hard Hat Tours had the opportunity to visit areas of the ship that have never been maintained.
To be on a safe side, tourists were required to come with appropriate clothing. The dates of the 2011 tours were October 15 and November 19.
What Guests Need To Know?
The guests are expected to make prior reservations for each tour. This is because there is limited space. Guests must be at least 14 years to be accepted to be part of the tour. The guests will get Hard Hats and water during breaks.
The guests were also expected to come with comfortable shoes, gloves, and flashlights for dark areas. Bringing camera was solely at the discretion of the guest.
