Sleep over on the Battleship New Jersey

Spend a night on the legendary Battleship New Jersey, a floating museum on the Camden Waterfront across from Center City Philadelphia. From the moment you walk up the gangway, you'll be greeted with a breathtaking display of the battleship's size- nearly three football fields long and eleven stories high. During your stay, you'll develop an appreciation of her strength- an Iowa-class battleship built to "keep floating and keep fighting". Imagine her awesome power including nine 16-inch guns that once reached land targets nearly twenty-three miles away. Provide a lifetime of memories for your group with an Overnight Encampment aboard the Battleship New Jersey.

Fun Filled Adventures

Enter the ship's legendary 16-inch gun turrets. Visit the Combat Engagement Center, and participate in a simulated launch of a Tomahawk missile. See the Captain's and Admiral's cabins and the Officer's Wardroom while you climb up and down the ship's original ladders and companionways.

Outstanding Educational Opportunities

Learn about the role the Battleship New Jersey, the most decorated battleship in US Naval history played in World War ll, Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf. The Ship store features many books, models and products about the battleship, the US Navy and our Armed Forces.
