USS Salem Overnight Adventure

posted Oct 14, 2010, 6:19 AM by John Heuchan

The United States Naval Shipbuilding Museum lets you experience life on board what was once one of the Navy's most powerful class of cruisers in the world. The USS Salem CA-139 is now the worlds only preserved heavy cruiser.  She is moored at her birthplace, the former Fore River Shipyard in Quincy, Massachusetts.

Our Overnight Adventure offers participants activities that include simulated combat situations such as radar tracking, damage control and simulated fire fighting. Other activities include scavenger hunts, cold water survival, hoisting, and first aid lessons.  

Its the hands-on aspect of our program that make us unique.  Our Adventurers get access to areas of the ship off-limits to regular guests. They even sleep in the same bunks used by naval personnel and eat in the same mess decks.   So, are you ready for a Shipboard Adventure?
