USS North Carolina Battleship Memorial


The USS North Carolina, a 35,000-ton superannuated World War II battleship, sits majestically just across the river from downtown Wilmington. Visitors swivel its gun turrets and study the alligators that swim lazily alongside. The memorial also houses a visitors center with a significant collection of photographs, artwork, memorabilia, and oral histories.
