For only the second time since the terrorist attacks of 9/11, the public is being allowed to tour a warship at the Seal Beach Naval Weapons Station.

USS McClusky, a guided missile frigate that entered service during the height of the Cold War, will accept visitors from 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Sunday. Visitors are urged to arrive early for the tour, which is free.

The public can enter the base through the Liberty Gate, which is on Seal Beach Boulevard, just south of where the street intersects with Pacific Coast Highway. An online photo essay explains the role and history of the McClusky, which was built at the old Todd Pacific Shipyard in San Pedro. For the full essay, go to ocregister.com/sciencedude
