So far they have raised only $1 million of the $20 million needed to complete their work.
The tours will be given from May 9 to July 1, and will be by appointment only and will cost a $100 tax deductible donation to the USS Monitor Center.
Tours are limited to 15 people and you must wear water-proof boots at least 8-inches high to enter the turret.
I just keep thinking about how neat it would be to enter that historic turret, and perhaps even touch it. Talk about interacting with history.
