CSS Neuse Interpretive Center to hold ‘Soft Opening’

Posted: Updated:
KINSTON, N.C. -

Moving the remains of Kinston's Civil War era gunboat indoors is a process that has been decades in the making. But now it is just days until the public can see what's left of the historic ironclad in its new air-conditioned home.

Thursday the CSS Neuse Interpretive Center on Queen Street holds a soft grand opening. Construction is not finished but visitors can see the Neuse from the upper mezzanine level. Interactive exhibits on the main level are still under construction. When that work is done next spring you'll be able to get even closer to the Neuse.

"We wanted to get the public in here as quickly as possible and so the soft opening has always been a part of the plan with temporary exhibits and guided tours by our interpreters." said Sarah Risty-Davis of the CSS Neuse Interpretive Center.

The center is free and will be open Tuesday through Saturday from 9am-5pm.
