Open Boat Days

Drop in for a casual tour of the ship. Get a tour from our volunteer docents. Take in the views from the top deck. Whenever we are docked at our home port on Lake Union, we are thrilled to open the boat to the public for FREE every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

Open hours are 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm.

Before you plan your trip, check this week's calendar to make sure we don't have other plans.


For most of the year, the S.S. Virginia V is docked on the southern bank of Lake Union. Our home port is easy to find behind the Museum of History and Industry (MOHAI) just past the antique steam clock.
