Battleship New Jersey - Camden, New Jersey


Recommended Posts



The Battleship New Jersey, which is currently getting 500,000 gallons of water from the Delaware River pumped into her for ballast at the Paulsboro Marine Terminal, will leave for Dock #3 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard during the afternoon of Wednesday, March 27.  Four tug boats from McAllister Towing will direct and move the Battleship north to the historic Navy Yard.

While in the Yard, the Battleship’s hull will be cleaned, coated, and checked for any maintenance needs.

Experience a guided tour of the Battleship while she’s at Dry Dock on Saturdays and Sundays, beginning April 6.  For tickets, visit  Battleship New Jersey Dry Dock

The Battleship New Jersey - The Most Decorated Battleship

NewJersey.png.666d3bec586ca671a3d7edcaa6f5bccd.pngThe Battleship New Jersey (BB-62) Museum & Memorial is located in Camden, NJ.  The museum regularly ranks as one of the best museums in NJ, one of the best things to do in Philadelphia, and serves as an entertaining attraction for families in New Jersey. Not only do you see exhibits of artifacts from the largest battleship’s past, but you are put into the exhibit as you go through the tour route. You can sit in the chair from which Admiral Halsey commanded the biggest battleship and the 5th Fleet. Stretch out on the bunks where the sailors slept. Climb into the 16” gun turret and learn how the projectiles were loaded. The New Jersey is one of the most interactive U.S. battleship museums.

I visited the NJ from the Philadelphia when we visited Philly a few years ago. 

BTW, The Morris House is a great place to stay because it is located very close to (walking that is) Independence Hall and the theater district.

Water taxi to the NJ.

The New Jersey is a great tour !!!  A must see Museum ship. 

And, if you get bored, wander 45 minutes North to Bethlehem, PA...  Bethlehem Steel has a museum and they preserved the Blast Furnaces where the 16" guns and Citadel and Ship Armor were made....  A must see if you are a ship Historian and want to know how the WW1 and 2 ships armor and weapons were made....
