Official opening November 17, 2018.
The naming of the new exhibition space, “Alfa Romeo Tango,” is from the National Alliance Treaty Organization (NATO) phonetic alphabet spelling the word “art.” The location is on the third deck, near the semi-permanent show, “Lost at Sea: The Explorations of Dr. Robert Ballard.” General admission to the museum incorporates entry to the gallery. A percentage of each sale will be donated to Battleship IOWA Museum.
