MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of the Pacific Battleship Center is to celebrate the American spirit through the preservation and interpretation of Battleship IOWA. In pursuit of this mission, we educate the public on the accomplishments and sacrifices of American patriots, and engage our guests in unique and exciting ways that bring the ship to life by connecting the past with the future.


Donations from the Fusenot Foundation contribute to ship preservation efforts. These include supporting necessary tasks such as painting, welding, electrical, pipe-fitting, deck restoration, alongside other critical restoration functions.


“The generous contribution from the Fusenot Foundation allows us to provide a world class museum that helps to educate the general public about American history.”
