Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum

(15 minutes from the North Charleston Inn)

Located on historic Charleston Harbor, Patriots Point is home to USS YORKTOWN, the Fighting Lady. The first USS YORKTOWN sank at the battle of Midway on June 7, 1942. Onboard the decks of this famous World War II aircraft carrier, you can relive a momentous time in America’s history. The Fighting Lady contains all the evidence of her past; one can see, touch, feel and smell the past, where young Americans fought and died to turn the fortunes of war in the Pacific. Moored next to her is USS LAFFEY, a World War II destroyer. LAFFEY survived the onslaught of Japanese kamikaze attacks while off Okinawa as Radar Picket Station #1 on April 16, 1945. She became known as “the ship that wouldn’t die.” Also moored alongside are the United States Coast Guard cutter INGHAM, which fought in the convoy battles of the North Atlantic and sank a German U-boat; and the diesel attack submarine USS CLAMAGORE. Onboard YORKTOWN are dozens of displays devoted to maritime and naval history, the Congressional Medal of Honor Society’s museum and headquarters, and more than two dozen historic military aircraft are on exhibit. Ashore is a full-size Navy Advance Tactical Support Base from the Vietnam era, and our gift shop.
