Not sure why it took us so long to visit -- but sure glad we did! What an amazing history lesson and a page from the past. Words just can not describe how emotionally moving it is to listen to the tour guides recant what took place on this dynamic vessel. Please take advantage of its location and visit....you'll be...

We stood on the side rail for 30 minutes waiting for the fireworks. They did have outside bar serice and some food inside.Bathroooms probably were hard to... More

We recently spent the weekend in Philadelphia and went across the river to Camden, NJ to visit the Battleship New Jersey. My husband, 10-year old son and I equally enjoyed it. The docents (including senior citizen, middle and college ages) were friendly and incredibly knowledgeabl about the New Jersey's incredibly history. A "must see" if you're in the Philly area.

An excellent piece of history, that is so easy yet exciting to touch and get a real feeling. Well-maintained, not to mention a beautiful waterfront to watch. Finally, the fees here altogether could be a little high, but you will have a history & life lesson AND an wonderful marvel. Very suitable for taking your children out for a nice... More

First let me start out by wishing everyone a Happy 2015. We decided that we wanted to watch the Philadelphia/Camden 2015 NYE fireworks from someplace different. I decided to purchase 2 tickets to the Battleship New Jersey for $10 each. The website and ticket purchase was extremely easy and I was able to download my tickets in minutes. The battleship...

Visited here the day after seeing Independence Seaport Museum - the ferry from Penns Landing over to Camden does not run during the winter months so we rented a car for our trip knowing this in advance. It's free to go over the bridge from Philly on the outbound but a $5 toll on the way back. There were a... More

What a piece of history! Easy access and beautiful waterfront. Great people here also. It may seem expensive, but just remember what you are seeing and doing here. This is a history lesson, a life lesson and an engineering marvel. Lives were changed and history was written and you get to be a part of it. You can walk the... More

Loved going here. We made it through almost to the end before the young boys started getting bored. It was really interesting and a lot of fun. Something every American should experience!!

This is a really nice place to visit. It is located on the Camden waterfront, next to Adventure Aquarium, and a short car or boat ride across the Delaware river from Philadelphia. You are able to go on the ship and take a tour and learn the history of this battleship. You can walk through the different sections of the... More

If you have boys, this is just the place to go to. I took my 12-year old and boy he loved it. Get a guided tour, it is worth it. You will learn a lot. We went on one of those days where it was at a discount, even better! Our long drive down from northern Jersey was definitely worth... More
