Portsmouth Naval Shipyard has a venerable heritage and rich tradition.  Learn about its role and achievements in times of war and peace from a military historian’s perspective. The tour includes a visit to the Shipyard’s Treaty of Portsmouth exhibit, a walking tour of the Shipyard Mall area, a driving tour around the perimeter of the base, including an up-close view of the former Naval Prison’s exterior, and lastly a visit to the Shipyard’s Heritage Center.  Must bring valid photo I.D. such as Driver’s License or U.S. Passport.  Non U.S Citizens will be required to submit additional documentation in advance.  Participants must be able to use the bus and negotiate stairs. Neither the bus nor comfort facilities are handicapped accessible. *You will park at Albacore Park, 569 Submarine Way, Portsmouth NH to board the bus. The Park would like us to use the back parking lot furthest away from the Submarine and Visitor Center.
