Battleship NORTH CAROLINA Questions & Answers

Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

Any one visit with an eleven month old baby. Would you recommend it? Or should we wait until he's older. I'm assuming no strollers aloud on the ship.

I'm not sure if strollers were allowed, but I would wait til he's old enough to walk on his own. There are a lot of steep narrow stairs.

Wait until he's older. Lots of walking and steps.

I would not recommend taking an 11-month old baby to the Battleship. You adults would definitely enjoy the tour, as the baby would most likely be fussy. There is no place to lay the child down. I believe strollers are allowed, but most of the trip involves going up and down unusual step formations (ladders straight down/up, circular staircases, 8-12" "walls" to climb over at some locations on the ship), and that would be difficult to do. Either leave "baby" with a trusted babysitter or relative so the adults can make this tour without worry and stress, or do wait until the baby is older. Whenever you do go, you will truly be in awe of this terrific Ship, and will definitely enjoy the tour(s).

It would be very challenging if almost impossible with a stroller though I guess you could carry the child in your arms but even then it would be difficult.

I would not recommend a stroller and the ship can be very warm.

I visited with my 9 month old when I went. He was in a baby back pack. Climbing down the narrow stair cases of a battle ship is not easy if you're going to have to carry a child. It can be very hot on the wrong day, and that also makes for a miserable child. Then unfortunately they're sweating and crying. I would wait. It is a great time and a wonderful look into the past. But it can also be hard on you with that young of a child.

I don't think an 11 month old will remember any of the visit. Also it would be a more difficult visit for you to take a stroller if allowed on the tour.

I would call them - I would think they would be ADA compliant since some veterans are wheelchair bound - so maybe a stroller is ok.
