My husband always wanted to visit the battleship.new jersey but never did so I decided to surprise him with a tour of the turrets. We had an interesting tour of the ins and outs of the different turrets and got to climb around inside the battleship. I could get a feel for what it must have been like for the sailors back then . Very enjoyable afternoon and the location on the water is lovely

The Battleship New Jersey is a fantastic attraction and one that’s worth multiple visits as the Nonprofit group and volunteers do a great job in restoring more and more sections of the ship

I've had the opportunity to tour all four Iowa class Battleships as well as the North Carolina and numerous other warship museums in the U.S. and abroad.

I was truly impressed by the tour and the operation they run on the New Jersey, they offer a Turret tour that's second to none, everything is very well organized.

I'm a volunteer on the Iowa and she'll always be my favorite but the New Jersey is a close second and the only other museum ship I'm a member of because I want to support the work they do.

My family just ended our vacation to Ocean City, NJ and was going to Philadelphia for a quick bite. I saw signs about the Battleship New Jersey and we went to visit this historical battleship.
It was so majestic to see it moored in NJ, and my family was amazed at the weaponry, the guns, cruise missles, and the historic battles it was involved in.
Age has taken a toll on the teak wood deck but very easy to be reminded of what it was like in its glory representing our country!
Highly recommend this place to visit, sure to change any negative opinion of our role a a super power.

Five stars is not enough for this ship and her crew. This ship is a must see for anyone who appreciates their freedom and values our country's history. I took my autistic son here for an overnight stay aboard the ship and was overwhelmed by the friendliness and helpfulness of the entire crew. Their enthusiasm for their job and preservation of the ship was well apparent. They sure made a lasting impression us and made sure Jake had the experience of a life time. We are from Shreveport, LA and this trip was my son's early Christmas present (12/2&3/17).

My wife and I went on BB-62 for my birthday. We went on the Turret II tour. It was amazing seeing how sophisticated the ship was back during WW II. Many many great places on the ship and got to simulate firing the 16 inch guns. The tour ended with the chow hall and a large sandwich of pulled pork. Highly recommend.Planning to go again when they have the engine room tour

Truly an amazing experience! My first time seeing a battleship in person. I felt I was one of the many sailors who served on this ship.

My first experience with BB62 was before she was moored in Camden, when I was part of a painting party on 9/8/01, sponsored by my employer, Lockheed Martin. After she came to Camden, my wife and I took three tours. My best experience was two below decks "Admiral's Tours" in 2004, stem to stern, bilge to bridge - came home covered with grease and oil and loved it!

The battleship does so much for veterans. They are currently collecting oral histories of former crew and submitting them to the Library of Congress.
