National PT Boat Museum

As the home to the National Pt Boat Museum, Battleship Cove displays the world's largest collection of PT boat artifacts.

The heart of this collection is PT Boats 617 and 796, the world's only restored pair of PT boats on public display. These National Historic Landmarks are complemented by a vast assemblage of ephemera collected by WWII PT boaters in the Pacific and Atlantic theaters, artifacts that help us to appreciate not only the heritage of PT boaters, but also the diverse cultures of the regions from which these artifacts originated. 

PT 796 is currently closed for the winter.
