  • Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum MT PLEASANT
    The Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum preserves history from both air and sea. The museum is home to the USS Yorktown aircraft carrier, a battleship docked at the shore, which served in World War II and Vietnam, and retrieved the Apollo 8 astronauts. Not far away, the USS Clamagore —the only Guppy III submarine preserved in the United States—is tied up in the water. Commissioned in 1944, the USS Laffey supported the D-Day landings at Normandy, and then served in Okinawa where it survived five kamikaze attacks and three bombs. More than 28 historical aircraft occupy the museum’s flight deck, hangar bay, and shore ranging from an F6F Hellcat to a full-scale replica of the Wright Brothers’ 1903 flyer. Onboard the USS Yorktown, the Medal of Honor Museum educates visitors about the United States’ highest award for military valor. Outside, the Cold War Memorial pays tribute to the men who served on submarines during the Cold War.

  • The Center for Birds of Prey
    The Center for Birds of Prey isn't a good place to be a mouse. For humans, however, it can fairly be called awesome. Nearly 50 majestic bird species including eagles, hawks, owls, and falcons from all over the world reside there. Visitors can watch these graceful raptors up close during flight demonstrations and learn about their lives during guided tours and educational programs. Ticket sales benefit the nonprofit Avian Conservation Center, which protects birds of prey by tending to them in a medical clinic and raising awareness of their role as "sentinel species"?that is, animals whose sensitivity to environmental changes can foretell what's to come for the rest of us.
