Hours of Operation
Veterans living in New Jersey: Free self-guided tours. Please note: Battleship Adventure is a fast-paced, interactive team exercise. But don't worry, the action takes place at tables within an enclosed area on the deck of the battleship which does not leave its docked location. No weapons. No violence. Just fun and learning! You'll have a blast.
The tours of the Battleship New Jersey are interactive. You will be going up and down on ladders, stepping through passageways and sometimes maneuvering in tight spaces - just like the officers and the crew of the USS New Jersey did. We strongly recommend you wear comfortable flat shoes. If you do not feel comfortable with a complete tour, you can enjoy a main deck tour, which does not have any ladders. We also offer video tours of the Battleship in the Wardroom Lounge on the Main Deck. If you are bringing a toddler or baby, you cannot bring a stroller aboard the ship. We recommend that you wear a baby carry-on across your front to carry babies aboard.

America's most decorated Battleship is now the area's most exciting museum, open for tours, events and overnight encampments. Exploring “BB62” is experiencing history in a whole new way. Not only do you see exhibits of artifacts from the ship’s past, but you are put into the exhibit as you go through the tour route. Sit in the chair from which Admiral Halsey commanded the fleet. Stretch out on the bunks where the sailors slept. Climb into the 16” gun turret and learn how the projectiles were loaded.



From the moment you step across the ship’s brow you will understand that this is a museum where visitors take an active role. From strolling across forecastle to climbing the original ladders up to the bridge, and beyond, each step in your journey brings you closer to understanding what life was like for a sailor on the Battleship New Jersey.

Add to that a wide range of fun and exciting options such as a live USO-style show, discounted joint tickets to other area attractions including Adventure Aquarium and the National Constitution Center, an on-board mystery show, a ride on our 4D Flight Simulator, and delicious catered food packages, and you have an ideal outing that your group will long remember.

    • Visit the Bridge, Communications, Captain's Cabins, and Officer's Wardroom.
    • Learn about the role the "Black Dragon" played in World War II, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf.

    • Examine the lockers that had to hold all of a sailor's personal belongings.
    • Check out the enlisted men's bunks.
