The afternoon session explores the Battleship’s 16-inch and 5-inch guns from the gun houses to the ammunition loading compartments; the 40mm and 20mm guns, and the weapons that they replaced (1.10 and 50 caliber guns). The programs is for adults only (ages 16 and up) and limited to 24 participants.
