A historic Texas landmark is reopening for the first time in almost two years for Fourth of July weekend. The tourist site was closed for repairs, but the Battleship Texas Foundation says it will temporarily reopen for July 3 and July 4.

The former USS Texas will be open from 8 am to 5:30 pm both days. The officer's wardroom, main deck and navigation bridge will all be open to guests. The rest of the ship will remain closed due to construction.
