The Battleship IOWA Museum in Los Angeles is a platform for education, veterans, and community engagement. Your help is needed to ensure that we don’t lose an iconic American symbol for future generations!

Donate by Phone: 877-446-9261 ext. 2

Since 2012, the Battleship IOWA Museum has welcomed more than one million visitors and veterans aboard this historic ship, and served tens of thousands of K-12 students with hands-on STEM education and U.S./Naval History excursions. Our new 11,000 square foot Lost at Sea exhibit, in partnership with Dr. Robert Ballard, allows visitors to explore “undersea museums” where shipwrecks and artifacts remain undisturbed. Due to our early sucess as a museum, we are now planning our long-term transition into the National Museum of the Surface Navy. All of this would not be possible, without the commitment of donors and volunteers to perform continued restoration and preservation of this historic Naval ship. We need your support more than ever. Donate now and help us have a lasting impact on America’s youth, veterans, and future.

You can make your donation below or by contacting our Development Team at 877-446-9261 ext. 747. The National Museum is part of the Pacific Battleship Center, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. Your donation is tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law. 

 Together, we can ensure the Surface Navy’s history and importance is not lost to future generations. Thank you for making this legacy possible.
