Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum

Located in the beautiful Charleston Harbor, just at the mouth of the Cooper River, is Patriots Point Naval and Maritime Museum. Home to the USS Yorktown (an aircraft carrier), the USS Laffey (a destroyer), and the USS Clamagore (a submarine), Patriots Point is the premier historical site for anyone interested in Naval history and watercraft, as well as a place built for interactive exploration by those little and large who like hands-on learning.

Seeing action in World War II and the Vietnam War, the USS Yorktown is arguably the Patriots Point highlight, as it was this highly decorated aircraft carrier which first marked the museum center’s opening back in 1976 and today houses the Congressional Medal of Honor Museum. With its angled back deck and impressive armament, the Yorktown is also home to 25 naval aircraft, including an F-14 Tomcat and A-7 Corsair, all available for viewing.
