All aboard the most decorated battleship in Naval History! Docked on the Camden Waterfront, the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial offers visitors a variety of ways to experience the ship, including guided tours and overnight encampments for youth groups and families.
America's most decorated Battleship is now the area's most exciting museum, open for tours, events and overnight encampments. Exploring "BB62" is experiencing history in a whole new way. Not only do you see exhibits of artifacts from the ship's past, but you are put into the exhibit as you go through the tour route. Sit in the chair from which Admiral Halsey commanded the fleet. Stretch out on the bunks where the sailors slept. Climb into the 16" gun turret and learn how the projectiles were loaded.
