Located on the Delaware River, along the Camden Waterfront across from the city of

Philadelphia, the Battleship is open every day from 9:30am to 3pm for tours.  The Turret II

Experience, available on Saturdays and Sundays at 11am, offers guests a guided tour of

the massive 16-inch gun turret. Journey five decks below the main deck.  Along the way,

guests will place the 5-foot projective in the hoist, load powder bags, produce a firing solution

on the analog computer, and pull the trigger to fire the massive gun!  Finish this unique tour with

a walk down Broadway, the longest and most interesting passageway aboard the Battleship.

Turret II Tours are $29.95 and  can be reserved online at www.battleshipnewjersey.org.
