Lilac is open regularly from Memorial Day through October. 

New hours for the 2018 season are 2:00 to 6:00 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. The ship is also open occasional evenings for public events.

Hours are subject to change to accommodate special events and weather.  We make every attempt to post changes in our calendar and apologize for any inconvenience. 

Admission to Lilac, our docked museum ship, is free and visitors can view exhibits and tour the ship at no charge.

Because space is limited, reservations may be required for special events.  For a list of exhibits, events and activities, see our calendar.

When you visit, remember that you will be entering a ship undergoing restoration.  Wear comfortable shoes that you can wear to climb a ladder and watch out for low overheads and for trip hazards.
