About Us

The mission of the Pacific Battleship Center (PBC) is to celebrate the American Spirit through the preservation and interpretation of the Battleship IOWA, to educate the public on the accomplishments and sacrifices of American patriots, and to engage guests in unique and exciting ways that bring the ship to life by connecting the past with the future. 

Our focus is on three mission-driven pillars: Education, Veterans, and Community. We bring Battleship IOWA to life through our innovative programs utilizing in-situ education and technologies of the future such as our award-winning mobile app, augmented reality, and virtual reality experiences.

Since the ship’s arrival to the Los Angeles Harbor, she has welcomed more than 1.5 million visitors to “Celebrate the American Spirit" on the LA Waterfront. Battleship IOWA is a community anchor for STEM and History-related educational programs, veterans’ job-skill growth, and local economic development, to name a few of her accomplishments since her arrival in 2012.
