About Battleship USS Iowa

Battleship IOWA Museum is a great place to have a picnic, catered event, meeting, or outing and her crew welcomes you and your special event guests to celebrate upon her teak decks, whether in the quiet shade of her officer’s verandas or in her stately wardrooms. Your guests will enjoy the gentle seaport climate that caresses outdoor special event locations aboard Battleship IOWA. Concerts, weddings, military ceremonies and corporate functions are seamlessly hosted at the ship. From the fantail views of the LA/Long Beach Channel to the sweeping vistas of Palos Verdes and Long Beach from her upper deck verandas, IOWA’s special event venues are breathtaking. Indoor settings evoke naval history and understated maritime grace: Officer’s Wardrooms, In-Port Captain’s Cabin and other unique surroundings will leave your guests buzzing with excitement and wonder. Gatherings aboard Battleship IOWA will convey to all her guests a backdrop of quiet strength with a uniquely American accent: Born of war, witness to war’s end, the ship is at once a monument to both the nation’s commitment to victory and its devotion to peace. Proceeds earned from events held aboard IOWA are invested by the Pacific Battleship Center in the restoration and preservation of the ship’s proud heritage.
