TEXAS After Dark Tour 2016

Sailors found many ways to fight boredom during their off duty hours.  Some they could write home and tell Mom about, and many they couldn't.  It takes both to weave the complete tapestry that was the crew history of Battleship Texas.  The Texas After Dark tour will take you through the passageways and into compartments to hear stories of drinking, gambling and general mischief taken directly from the diaries and verbal histories of veterans who served on board. 


This adults only tour (ages 18 and up ONLY) will take place on Saturday,

November 19th from 5-7 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.
