$20 for Museum Admission for Two (Up to $40 Value)
The museum preserves historic ships and aircraft, such as the USS Yorktown (CV-10), which earned a total of 16 battle stars in both World War II and Vietnam. It also recovered the astronauts from the Apollo 8 capsule, and showcased in the Academy Award-winning documentary The Fighting Lady, which, contrary to popular belief, is not about Margaret Thatcher’s boxing career.
Other sites include the National Historic Landmark USS Laffey, which survived attacks at D-Day and Okinawa, acted as a support ship during the A-bomb test at Bikini Atoll, and earned two battle stars during the Korean War. Patriots Point is also home to the Medal of Honor Museum, as well as the newest exhibit, The Vietnam Experience, which features the sights and sounds on the Vietnam War and honors the American heroes who served.
