Battleship Texas to reopen on Sunday, Nov. 13

Battleship Texas will remain closed to the public on Friday, Nov. 11, and Saturday, Nov. 12 because of repairs. The attraction will reopen on Sunday, Nov. 13 starting at 10 a.m. and closing for the day at 5 p.m. Visitors can spend the day aboard the vessel with free admission as a result of the flooding incident caused by corrosion of the ship's hull, according to a statement released by the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department.

A "1945 Victory Dance" event, scheduled to take place on Saturday night on the deck of the battleship, will be relocated to on shore beside the ship. The First Texas Volunteers are organizing the event.

TPWD released the following statement on Saturday:

Battleship Texas is located on 3523 Independence Parkway South in La Porte.
