Battleship Iowa Veterans Day Celebration and Film Festival
Battleship Iowa honors our veterans with a free Veterans Day Film Festival. The first ever film festival debuts the Emmy Award winning documentary The Last Signal and WWI documentary They Shall Not Grow Old, with a live Q&A by Emmy Award winning director Kyle Olson.
Throughout the day, there are free family-friendly activities on the fantail of the ship including mural painting and Vicky the Dog story time with author Carole Hershman (Vicky was the ship’s mascot once upon a time).
Ship tours are offered throughout the day at regular admission rates. All active, reserve and retired military receive free self-guided tour admission. Tours start at 10am; the last tour is at 4pm.
Food & drink are available for purchase.
