USS Indianapolis: The Legacy

Experience this groundbreaking film, the story of the greatest sea disaster in the U.S. Navy History, told for the first time by only the men who lived it.

In the most top secret Navy mission of World War II, the crew of the heavy cruiser USS Indianapolis delivers components of the atomic bomb to Tinian island. Four days later, two Japanese torpedoes sink the ship in the Challenger Deep, triggering an epic tale of survival. For five days, the 880 men who make it into the water battle searing sun, thirst, hundreds of sharks- and ultimately each other. Just 317 survive- only to band together again in a fifty-year fight to clear their captain's name.

Set to a soaring original score, this incredible story unfolds with rare WWII footage, previously unpublished photographs, and new footage from one of the last WWII-era heavy cruisers still afloat. USS Indianapolis: The Legacy shows us that through courage and faith, ordinary men can survive the crucible of nature, and emerge extraordinary heroes.

Preserving our History-Superstructure Preservation Project

Currently, work is being done to our superstructure and is expected to be completed by the end of January 2018. For safety reasons, our flying and navigation bridges will be closed during restoration. We appreciate your patience and understanding and your part in helping to preserve America’s last Battleship.

Currently, we don't have ADA access to the Surrender Deck. Our lift from the main deck to the Surrender Deck is temporarily out of order. We hope to have this fixed as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding.
