Wilmington, NC – The Battleship North Carolina is offering two behind-the-scenes tours tomorrow for its Hidden Battleship event.

Participants will have an expert show them around the engine room and see where the ship was hit by a torpedo in 1942.

Programs Director Danielle Wallace says these tours bring participants back to another time.

"You'll see papers on desks and charts and things that are still filled out where it looks like someone has just left it. And to me that's incredibly cool to think that this area, no one has really been in for maybe 40 or 50 years."

On the four-hour tours participants will also get to watch radio transmissions being made and visit the brig.
