The Battleship New Jersey is America's most decorated Battleship. Learn what life was like as a sailor on the ship by strolling across forecastle, climbing the original ladders up to the bridge, stretching out on the bunks where the sailors slept and by climbing into the 16” gun turret. The "BB62" was built at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, and launched in 1942. She was brought back to Philadelphia in 1999, and was restored, opened and established as an educational museum and a tribute to the brave sailors who served on her during her long and distinguished career. The Battleship New Jersey opened as a Museum and Memorial in October 2001. 


Parking is available in the Waterfront Garage located on Delaware Avenue. It's just a short trip from the Garage to the Battleship New Jersey.
