USS Iowa Project, Berth 87, Port of Los Angeles

The Port of Los Angeles proposes to relocate the USS Iowa battleship from its current location at Suisun Bay, California, to Berth 87 in the Port of Los Angeles, California. The battleship will be moored year-round at Berth 87 with sufficient parking to accommodate visitor use. Portions of the Iowa will be available to the public for guided tours, special events, and educational programs. A second phase of the project may include, pending future funding, an approximately two story, 33,800 square foot ft (approximate footprint) landside Visitor Center which includes a museum and education center featuring historic artifacts, educational programs and food concession areas; ticketing; gift shop; and restroom facilities.
