Excellent museum models highlighting battleship development. The New Jersey's many battle honors made it an honor to tour her. It was great to stand where Halsey once stood on the flag bridge. It's a one of a kind museum experience crawling inside a 16-inch gun turret. There was Some confusion following the self-guided tour lines. We received helpful directions from... More

I stayed away from visiting because of the reputation of the area. I was pleasantly surprised by the beautiful and safe waterfront park that comprises the battleship and the aquarium. The ship itself is a magnificent work of 1930's engineering and the historical significance if the ship is with you as you walk. You get a good sense if what... More

Finally took the time to visit the Battleship NJ and were not disappointed. It's an important piece os US history and you owe it to yourself to visit it. The guides were very informative and the self guided tour was wonderful. Entrance fees are extremely reasonable

My wife, son, and I spent an afternoon on the New Jersey. It was a few days after Labor Day, we probably only saw 10 other visitors during our two hours there. The audio tour was nicely put together, with various clear marked stops. It was great to see the evolution and historical account of how the ship has changed... More

Visited the Battleship New Jersey today. Was told when I boarded her that it was more accessible than the North Carolina which I have visited on several occasions, but I found this not to be the case. The displays are first rate. The ship is a wonderful living history lesson on the technology and living conditions that our soldiers and... More

I visited here after seeing a brochure at my hotel in Philadelphia. The Ferry ride across from Penn's Landing was great. The Battleship is great. Be aware that there is a lot of climbing, narrow and steep ladders and tight spaces. The kids visiting seemed to be having a lot of fun. The interactive self guided tour is excellent. There... More

this majestic ship fought and survived 4 wars, and looks like it could sail off to battle again today if needed... great displays, wish i would have visited before my heart went bad, as stairs/ladders are now a no go for me

My now 6 year old son and myself, marked our calendar for our trip to the USS New Jersey. The ship has planned sleep overs for kids and adults..a lot of boy scouts and girl scouts. A very patriotic feeling sweeps over you as you salute the American flag on the fantail of the ship and they play taps..off to... More
