“The mission of the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial is to restore, preserve, and exhibit the continuing history of the USS New Jersey and those who worked and served on her so their service will continue to educate and inspire future generations.”


The Home Port Alliance for the USS New Jersey. Inc. (Home Port Alliance) is the organization responsible for the restoration and management of the Battleship New Jersey Museum & Memorial, our country’s largest and most decorated Battleship. The Home Port Alliance is a private non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. We are a unique blend of history, education, entertainment and hospitality. While historic preservation and restoration are key missions, exhibition and tourism are integral to funding our goals. This translates to having both a non-profit museum and a fun-filled family attraction.

As a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Battleship New Jersey would not exist without the support of donors and volunteers. It is because of the generosity of individuals, corporations and the public sector that we can continue to maintain the ongoing restoration, preservation and educational programs that take place onboard the ship.
