Although there aren’t any known photographs of the interior of USS Monitor showing spaces such as the officer’s quarters or engine room and its machinery; much of the interior of the ironclad can still be seen through other documentation of the period such as photographs of other ironclad, drawing, and engravings etc. Please join us on an hour long tour through the “Cheesebox-on-a-raft” and get an inside view of the ship! Learn why people lined up to see the inside of this revolutionary vessel!
