Battleship to Open for Tours with a Bang on Saturday, March 6

WHEN:          Saturday, March 6, 11:00am – 3:00pm

 

WHAT:          The Battleship New Jersey will open for tours on Saturdays and Sundays in March from 11am to

3pm, beginning Saturday, March 6. To open with a bang, the Battleship will choose a guest in the

morning on Saturday, March 6 to fire the ship’s portside saluting gun at noon.

 

If guests want to guarantee the chance to pull the trigger and fire the gun, they can make a $50

donation when they purchase tickets in the morning.  The Battleship will do as many gun shoots

as guests donate for beginning at 12pm through 2pm.

 

During a tour of the World’s Greatest Battleship, check out the massive 16-inch gun turrets, track

a tomahawk missile in the Combat Engagement Center, learn how the crew of the USS New Jersey

lived aboard this floating city and more.  Even experience free guided extended tours of an Engine

Room and inside Gun Turret II.
