Went to visit the ship this past 4th of July. Because of the Covid-19 situation parking is temporarily free. All facilities are clean and state precaution guidelines are being follow (Mask required, Social distancing, Sanitizing stations, etc..). Staff is very friendly and informative. The "Big J" as the battleship is called is amazing. So much history and lots of stuff to see. I recommend to take half day so you will be able to explore the whole ship. Fee was $24 per adult. Worth every penny!!!

What a great place to visit! A mask is required both inside and outside the ship, but it is air conditioned inside (and there's at least two bathrooms inside as well.) We did the green self-guided tour, and it was informative and interesting. At the end of the green tour are three other subtours. Best time to go is now during the reopening as parking is free and there's not a whole lot of other people. Small gift shop, and they have a smashed penny machine. Sign up for emails and you'll get a BOGO coupon. Recommended.

My wife and I visited the New Jersey 3 days before my 63nd birthday. I had her take a picture of myself holding up the #62 on the bow. Spent 3 1/2 hours and spoke with all the veterans on the ship. Enjoyed every minute on board and now have a bucket list for the next few birthdays. Oh, February in Hawaii for next year. Philly is a great city to visit. We went to Independence Hall and took in the Liberty Bell. Our stay was at the Hilton on Penn's landing,17th floor river view room and all was within10 blocks walking distance. America truly is the greatest country in the world.

The title of this review is literal, l walked to the Battleship New Jersey from downtown Philly and over the Ben Franklin Bridge, took a while but was a pleasant walk and the views from the bridge were great (l walked back too). I visited during a very cold January afternoon and pretty much had this awesome ship to myself. I done the self guided 'Fire Power' tour which was great and covered most areas of the ship. My only regret is not going earlier in the day as l did run out of time, l was there for about two and a half hours but could have easily spent another hour there as there is a lot to read about and learn. Staff l spoke to were very helpful and knowledgeable.

This is a large ship and you should take a whole day for a visit. Guided tour helps you from deck to deck. Amazing to see how a WW II battleship has been upgraded to serve many years later.
