Hands on PT109 cart program

Stranded at Sea is a 25-minute hands-on experience for visitors of all ages.

Come hear the story of John F. Kennedy's patrol torpedo boat collision with a Japanese destroyer during World War II, and the crew's six-day struggle for survival. Read Kennedy's letters home describing Navy life, follow the path of the collision and rescue, and see the real coconut message that helped save the crew of PT-109.

The program is free of charge with Museum admission. Check lobby signs for times and location. Programs subject to docent availability; last-minute cancellations may occur.
