Presidents Tour
View the Captain's In Port Cabin and hear the stories about President Franklin Delano Roosevelt's historic trip across the Atlantic on board the IOWA in 1943. This top secret mission was set-up to transport FDR across the Atlantic to meet with Churchill and Stalin at the Tehran Conference. This fully guided 45 minute experience will delve into FDR's mission, and will tell the stories of his most trusted advisors and military leaders that accompanied him on that trip. You will hear about a close call involving another escort ship providing protection duties for the IOWA that could have changed the course of WWII.
