Hours and Events

Admission to LILAC is free.  Because space is limited, reservations may be required for special events.

LILAC will open for the 2017 season on Memorial Day weekend.  The ship is open to the public each summer three afternoons per week for exhibits, tours, and other activities. 

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

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.
