To celebrate its 40th anniversary, the Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum is letting visitors name their own admission prices on both January 9th and 10th.
That’s right, instead of paying standard admission prices and parking fees, guests will be encouraged to pay whatever they can afford! Every ticket will include all three historic vessels, the Congressional Medal of Honor Museum, and the Vietnam Experience Exhibit.
The USS Yorktown opened to the public on January 3, 1976 to a crowd of 2,601 people. Since then, more than 9.6 million visitors have toured the facilities.
The museum is open daily from 9 am to 6:30 pm. The normal admission rate is $20 for adults. Parking is usually $5.
