Nuclear Ship Savannah Tour

May 22 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

$10 – $15 | Register

On May 22, take a step back in time to the Cold War with a tour of a ship formerly powered by uranium! The Nuclear Ship Savannah, the world’s first nuclear-powered merchant ship, is truly one-of-a-kind. In the 1950s, President Dwight Eisenhower desired a “peace ship” that would serve as an ambassador for the non-weaponized use of atomic power. On July 21,1959, First Lady Mamie Eisenhower christened the $46.9 million vessel at its launching. After traveling almost half a million miles and visiting over 77 international and domestic ports, the reactor was de-fueled in 1975. Currently docked in Baltimore, the ship has been afloat for 60 years now and is still going strong. We hope you’ll join us to tour this registered National Historic Landmark and take in the sleek modern “Atomic Age” interiors decorated with none other than atom diagrams.
