  • How cool is it to see a battleship?!!! I knew it would be neat, but I had no idea. This ship was in 4 American wars and is most decorated ship and the biggest. So she is special. This is a must. It’s ...  more »
  • Went here awhile back, then my 11 year old girl got the privilege of staying over night on the ship. She loved the massive guns, which a few of them got to act like they were firing. They ate in the m...  more »
  • The USS New Jersey (BB-62), was the largest ever built US "Battleship" of the United States Navy, and has a length of around 270 and 33 metres wide. The ship was named after the homonymous State, scheduled between 1938 and 1942 & built and completed in 1943 in the, then used in the second world war in 1944. 1948 the ship was out of service for the first time provided, but reactivated in 1950 for the Korean war. in 1957, the decommissioning followed once again. As a single "Battleship" the fleet, she was reactivated in 1968 for use in the Vietnam war, remained around one and a half years in service. The last time New Jersey began in 1982 and lasted until 1991. Total was this ship between 1943 and 1991 for 21 years in the active service of the United States Navy. in 1999 she was finally struck register from the "naval vessel" and two years it opened as a museum ship in the Delaware River New Jersey. Since 2004, she is of historic places listed in the national register. Our visit was worth.

  • More impressive than I thought it would be. I was even able to crawl into one of the main gun turrets. Not crowded because it was raining. Has a very nice technical battleship comparison exhibit (with one inaccuracy, claiming American and German armor plate was the best when in fact it was British armor (instead of American, which was 25% inferior) that was the best armor. You do have to be able to navigate steep steps, so not a good tour for disabled people unless they have special provisions for same. Amazing to see what a real warship is like, though I get the feeling this ship is much more spacious than the vast majority of military vessels.
  • I love to tour these old vessels. The big "J" as they called it is a very interesting self guided tour...or you can get a guided tour as well. Give yourself 3~4 hours even if you move quickly through. If you read it all...Give it the entire day.
  • Our JROTC Group from Orange County NY spent a night here and it was one of my most memorable nights as a cadet. This was back in 2016 and I still remember every moment of it, from the night time cannon fire, to the morning reveille. I went on a tour of the ship with a member of the crew who was on board from the 80s-90s His knowledge of the ship was fantastic. That night we even had a special guest who served on the ship in WW2 and told us his stories about the ship. This ship is a great part of American history, and so are the people who ran it!
  • Was absolutely amazing. Our tour guide was very informative and answered every question. Beware however, as far as I know the walking tour is not handicap friendly. They have an elevator from the dock to the ship, but only stairs between floors.
  • The entire ship's size and history blew my mind. You don't get to access everything in it though which is a bit of a disappointment. It may be heaven if you love warships like I do but it'll be boring if you have no interest in such things (why would you go in the first place then?) On and inside the ship is a bit hot and the doors sometimes are a bit hard to get into and the stairs are hard to get onto but the view from the ship is splendid and the history is amazing.
