Ramping Up to Save the USS Monitor's Turret-- Part 4: Sign Me Up for a Tour

A new conservation campaign funded by a year-long effort has raised more than $1 million through grants, pledges, partnership agreements and cash contributions including a %$500,000 gift from the descendants of Monitor Captain John L. Worden and an annual $250,000 curatorial stipend from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration which operates the Monitor National Marine Sanctuary.

Also, there will be a series of private guided tours for donors through the center's conservation lab and done when the conservators are not working.
