Back by popular demand, the Battleship IOWA's barbershop will once again open and hair will be hitting the deck. That’s right - the ship’s actual barbershop that serviced generations of sailors and even trimmed up the 41st President of the United States, George H.W. Bush, will be open for business.

A-BarberShop from Long Beach will be cutting hair. There will be special promotional products available from our generous sponsors Somersets, Cremo, Sauvecito, and Head Blade. Sit and take photos in the same chair President George H.W. Bush sat in for his hair cut!

Men’s haircuts are $20 (cash only). Special $11 self-guided tour tickets are available for any paying customer. 

Appointments available every half hour with one of 4 barbers (lunch break from 12:30-1:30 PM).
