The Battleship NORTH CAROLINA is open every day of the year, including all holidays, rain or shine, as the Ship serves as a memorial. On Christmas Day the Ship opens at noon.

Because of tidal flooding, it is always recommended that visitors monitor tide and weather information before visiting low-lying areas of the Cape Fear Coast such as the Battleship.
