Where are we going today?

The SS Jeremiah O'Brien can be explored in it's entirety from engine room to bridge, it's a functioning memorial to Merchant Marines who served on the Liberty fleet in World War II.

The main steam engine is demonstrated on Steaming Weekends (generally the third weekend each month) so visitors can see the engine plant at work.

Cruises can be booked aboard the Jeremiah too but plan ahead, they're rare and popular.

    They let you go virtually everywhere on this vessel. The engine room is open for the most part and is by far the coolest part of the ship.

    The SS Jeremiah O'Brien was truly an awesome tour to come aboard, I highly recommend visiting it if you're at all interested. The crew is incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic, as they restore _and operate_ the vessel. The Jeremiah O'Brien is a _working_ WW2-era vessel they occasionally take out on cruises. They do all the repairs using the same methods and materials as the original vessel.

    The staff greatly enhanced the tour of this massive vessel, and I spent a decent amount of time aboard. It was well worth the cost, which wasn't much anyways....Read More

    An amazing ship/museum that has a very knowledgeable group of volunteers taking care of her. Don't forget to leave a donation so that she can sail for many more decades.

    Had a great experience with the overnight program. Great group activity for scouts and schools. Very well organized, educational and fun tours. Kids had a great time. Highly recommended.

Very little of the ship is cordoned off, I was able to visit from the engine room at the bottom, to the bridge at the top, and from bow to stern.
