What a privilege to be able to explore this Battleship. The guides dotted around the ship are very knowledgeable. You have to be able to climb ladders and be relatively fit to get into all the areas of this battleship.

We visited the Battleship New Jersey, earlier this month, one day, when the snow was melting. Because of that, only part of the ship was open for touring. We opted not to take the audio tour, as it was even more money; however, we may...More

As other reviewers have stated, the New Jersey is the most decorated battleship and the only one to have been commissioned 4 times. She is probably the best battleship ever built, capable of effectively performing a wide variety of missions. Anyone interested in military history...More

5 PM is the latest time that you can start your tour. Most guests complete the Fire Power Tour in 90 minutes, so most guests finish their tour by 6:30.
