Berthed on the Camden Waterfront across the Delaware River from Center City Philadelphia, the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial is a non-profit historic ship museum that offers walk-up tours every day from 9:30am to 5pm. Experience the Turret II tour! Journey five decks to the bottom of the massive 16-inch gun turret. Along the way, you’ll load projectiles, plot a firing solution and even pull the trigger to simulate the firing of this giant gun. Complete your guided tour with a walk down Broadway. Turret II tours launch Saturday and Sunday at 11am and 1pm. For tickets, visit www.battleshipnewjersey.org or call 866-877-6262 ext. 203.
