This National Historic Landmark has four decks to explore and photograph. Some decks are docent-led only. So manage your time carefully if you intend to see it all. The ship will be commemorating it’s 69th anniversary of the Doolittle Raid with flight operation simulations. This should be interesting to photograph.We are asked to not bring food. However, there is a concession stand and vending machines on board.
