Admission is $9 for adults, $8 for seniors, $7 for children, and free for those ages five and under.

For the safety of their staff, volunteers, and visitors, the USS Slater will be adhering to safety guidelines set by the state. Everyone will be required to wear a mask while aboard, tour groups will be kept small, and the ship will be disinfected regularly.

The ship is located in Downtown Albany at the intersection of Broadway and Quay Street.

USS Slater is owned, maintained, and operated by the Destroyer Escort Historical Museum, a private, non-profit, charitable organization that receives no regular government support.
