School Field Trips

Aspire...  Explore...  Achieve...


Inspire a love of history in students by taking a field trip to the USS IOWA! In order to ensure a successful visit, we ask all school and home school group leaders familiarize themselves with the following:

Tours are available Monday-Friday from 1000 to 1600 hours (10:00 AM to 4:00 PM).

  • School and Home School group tours are for grades 3 and up.
  • The docent-led tour route takes approximately 1.5 hours.  Docents are provided free of charge for all school groups.
  • The group leader is encouraged to visit the ship in advance to deepen their understanding prior to the visit. Two complimentary tickets will be provided for this purpose.
  • We require a 1:10 student ratio. No charge for chaperones within this ratio.
  • Minimum size for a group is 20 students.
  • Price is $7 per person (students and chaperons).

Additional offerings:

  • Box lunches may be purchased. Meals are eaten in the crew's mess based on availability.
  • Visit USS Iowa’s Ship Store, where students may shop or pre-purchase gift bags. If you are interested in pre-purchasing, please download, fill out, and email back the form directly to the email address specified on the form. A representative from the Ship Store will contact you.  Click here to download form.
