  • My brother-in-law, a naval historian, suggested that I go see the battleship New Jersey. To my surprise, I spend more than two hours on the ship on a very well-organized self-guided tour with a good a...  more »
  • We weren't sure what to expect here and were blown away by the history of this ship. The volunteers were great onboard, with stories that captivated my kids and displays that drew is all in. We saw th...  more »
  • I was serving in the Navy at the time when Reagan brought the battleships out of retirement so this tour may have meant a little more to me. You get to go through a lot of the ship, see the big guns u...  more »
  • 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.
  • An amazing ship with tons of history! I learned a great deal and had a fun time doing so. I'm dumbfounded that a ship built by the greatest generation was strong and adaptable enough to serve through 4 decades, it's a true testament to the past.
