Lilac is open for the 2019 season until October 20th. 

Regular hours for the 2019 season are 2:00 to 6:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays.

Hours are subject to change due to the weather.  If the forecast is for 50 percent or more chance of rain or if a Heat Advisory has been declared, the ship will close.

The ship is also open at other times for special public events.  Because space is limited, reservations may be required for special events. Join our mailing list to receive advance notice.

Group tours may be scheduled outside of our regular hours depending on availability of a tour guide and crew. Please contact us to make a reservation.

Admission to Lilac, our docked museum ship, is free and visitors can view exhibits and tour the ship at no charge. Donations are gratefully accepted but are not required.

For a list of exhibits, events and activities, see our calendar.

When you visit, remember that you will be entering a ship undergoing restoration.  We want you to enjoy your visit safely. Wear comfortable flat shoes and clothing that you can wear to climb a ladder. Watch out for low overheads and for trip hazards and obey all instructions from our crew.
