Visitors embark on an interactive visit to Battleship New Jersey, the nation's most decorated battleship. Guests can climb the same ladders, man the same gun turrets, and sit on the same bunks that soldiers used during World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The museum's winter hours are from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays, with the ship closed for tours between Tuesday, January 1, and Friday, February 1.

Battleship New Jersey

Exactly one year after the attack on Pearl Harbor, Battleship New Jersey was launched into an ocean roiled by the conflicts of World War II. Its storied journey would continue on through the Korean and Vietnam Wars as well as a stint in President Reagan's 600-ship Naval fleet. Now the nation's most decorated battleship, the 887-foot-long, 45,000-ton, 18-story vessel resides on the Camden Waterfront, serving as a living history museum and a reminder that boats aren't just for towing water-skiers to work. Today, guests get a glimpse of what life was like for a sailor on the ship. Tours let visitors walk across the forecastle, stand beside gun turrets capable of firing 19,000-pound rounds, and even sit in the same chair from which Admiral William Halsey directed the ship through the South Pacific in World War II.

Reviews

Lots of great information about the ship along with personal stories from the brave men who served aboard her.
