We've talked a bit about Escape The Mothball Fleet, our new exploration/adventure aboard Battleship IOWA, but what exactly is it?

Battleship IOWA has an uncanny knack for attracting historical treasures of all shapes, sizes, and several eras. From a guest book signed by FDR and his war cabinet to a Mark-48 bombardment computer, we're always on the lookout for things with relevance to the ship. And opportunities to acquire such priceless artifacts and missing pieces seem to fa…
 
A few podcasts back we got into a discussion about the origins of the word "scuttlebutt." A lot of you looked it up and dropped the meaning in the comments, so we decided to dedicate this week's podcast to ship lingo. We start by explaining a few good ones, then put the sailors in the crowd to the test with a list of terms they had to explain on th…

Every so often, an event of truly epic proportions becomes the stuff of legend. The engagement off Samar during the larger Battle of Leyte Gulf on Oct. 25, 1944 is such an event.

How do we think of preservation when it comes to Battleship IOWA? There are multiple layers to the question. We're a museum, so we have to conserve the ship as an artifact, but we need the functionality of a modern office space. We have to respect the legacies of three generations of sailors (WWII, Korea, the Cold War), who served aboard. We have t…

The second half of our conversation with Dave Way (Battleship IOWA historian and curator) and Jim Kurrasch centers on "Artifact Number 1" - which is the ship itself.
