Olympia's last official naval mission was to carry the body of the Unknown Soldier from France to the United States in 1921. The Cruiser was decommissioned in 1922 and has been part of Independence Seaport Museum since 1996. The ship is a National Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
