MOONLIGHT ADULT TOUR

Experience an “adult-oriented” tour during the evening hours! This spooky adult tour, led by a member of our curatorial team, will take guests through rarely seen parts of the ship and will showcase the more mature sailor art created over the years, as well as share some adult stories.

All guests will get a free Battleship mini-flashlight to help guide their way.  Guests can also enjoy a cold beer, glass of wine or a soft drink after the tour.  Must be over 21 years or older.

Admission is $40

$20 for Battleship NJ Members

 

A second Moonlight Tour is scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 28 at 6pm.

Black Dragon Friday @ Battleship New Jersey
Nov 25 @ 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
Black Dragon Friday @ Battleship New Jersey
On the Battleship New Jersey, the Friday after Thanksgiving. Nov. 25, is known as “Black Dragon Friday.”
During World War II, the USS New Jersey was nicknamed the “Black Dragon” because of her dark hull and when she fired her 16-inch projectiles, she looked like she was spitting fire.
So instead of Black Friday, we celebrate “Black Dragon Friday” on Nov. 25. And you can celebrate too! All merchandise in our Cafe Store will be available for an additional 10% discount!
And a happy and safe Thanksgiving. To celebrate the holiday, the ship will be closed for tours on Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 24.
Happy Holidays from the Big J!
