Battleship New Jersey

By Linda Tancs

Battleship New Jersey is an 887-foot-long, 45,000-ton ship that navigated the waters during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War prior to dropping its anchor in Camden in 2001. Now part of Battleship New Jersey Museum & Memorial, it offers tours of many areas, including the bridge, the crew’s mess, the communications room and a climb inside the massive 16-inch gun turret. Self-guided tours as well as guided tours of some areas are available. The venue is located on the Camden waterfront directly across the Delaware River from Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia.
