Kinston's CSS Neuse Interpretive Center-- Part 3: A Bottle of Worcestershire Sauce

The hull and ghost skeleton can be viewed from ground level and upstairs.  There is also a full-size cut-out model of the ship and a video presentation.

Nearby the center is a full-size replica outside on Heritage Street.

They have artifacts salvaged from the ship after it was brought up on display like coal rakes used on the boiler, cannon balls, shells, a belt buckle, wrenches, files, shovels, sockets, a stove, ship's bell and an intach bottle of Lea and Perrin's worcestershire sauce.  In addition, there is a rare English-made cuff button from an officer's coat and another with a CSN emblem.
