      MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) -- If you're looking for something to do before you carve the turkey on Thanksgiving, you can visit Patriots Point.

      The museum will open on Thursday at 9 a.m. and close at 3:30 p.m. The last ticket will be sold at 2 p.m.

      The museum will resume its normal hours on Friday, operating from 9 a.m. until 6:30 p.m.

      "With so many families hosting out-of-town guests for the holidays, we want them to have the opportunity to show off the beauty and magnificence of our ships and aircraft," said Patriots Point Executive Director Mac Burdette.{}

      "The holidays also offer a good excuse for the locals to play tourist in their own town," he added.
