The Foundation hopes this project will increase visitors’ understanding of the ship and ultimately the quality of their experience touring the famed landmark. The audio tours will be presented in English and Spanish and in a kid-friendly format to make information easier to access for more visitors.

“After audiences gain an understanding about the ship, they will be able to appreciate its significance to U.S. history and in turn, we hope, promote local pride and community. Without Shell's funding, promoting strong community via this project would not be possible,” said Bruce Bramlett, Battleship Texas Foundation Executive Director.

“As a proud member of this community since 1929, our site is excited about the opportunity to support this storied landmark in a way that educates visitors and preserves the history of Battleship TEXAS, while promoting visitors to the region,” said Barry Klein, Shell Deer Park General Manager.

Audio tours are expected to be available by the fall of 2016.
