Independence Seaport Museum Cruiser Olympia Will Remain Open

Independence Seaport Museum has announced the cruiser Olympia will remain open to the public

Public tours of the National Historic Landmark ship, the Cruiser Olympia, will continue after November 22, 2010 on a reduced schedule and not fully cease as previously planned.

From January through March 31, 2011 the historic ships will close to the public Monday through Thursday (except on Monday Holidays) so that the Museum’s staff can perform short-term preservation projects and routine maintenance. The ships will be open for tours on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, as well as holiday Mondays (Martin Luther King, Jr. Day and Presidents Day). Starting April 1, 2011, public tours will resume their regular daily schedule from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The reduced winter schedule will not apply to the Museum’s indoor exhibits, which will remain open to visitors daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Tours of the Olympia and the WWII Submarine, Becuna will continue daily from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. until December 31, 2010.
