Where is the 2010 990? Also this organization has failed to file with the NJ State Charities Unit of the State Attorney General's Office since 2008 and has been deemed "non-compliant" to collect any donations under the Charitable Registration & Investigation Act of 1994. The museum is currently closed and under investigation by several government agencies and the CEO has testified to the NY State Senate Budget Committee in March of 2011 that with the lose of $1.74 million in State Aid (which they did loose), they would be insolvent and close by this past Fall. They also have a $900,000 loan they cannot repay that is not going to be guaranteed anymore and will be likely called in.

The "Big J", is living history. This most decorated battleship in World War Two is a lesson in Naval history from the sailor's bunks to Admiral Halsey's quarters. You can see it all on a single visit from the anchor chains on the bow to the helicopters on the stern, and the electronic "war room" from which the guns and rockets were controlled. It is truly an amazing ship in pristine condition, with veteran docents to escort you through.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I have taken hundreds of groups, old and young, through this magnificent ship.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Give it more money.

The Battleship New Jersey is the largest battleship ever built and the most decorated battleship in the history of the US Navy. Berthed in Camden, NJ, the New Jersey offers tours, group discounts, events and a nationally recognized overnight program.

They need money to replace the teak decking, but the rest of the ship is incredible. Whether you take a guided tour with a docent, or do a self-guided audio tour, you will fall in love with this ship. It is amzing how the ship is presented.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

visiting the ship often and prmoting it because of my love of history and this ship

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Get it more money so they could replace the teak deck
