Evening Guided Tours: Turret II @ Battleship New Jersey

Friday, February 11, 2022 at 6PM
Join a knowledgeable tour guide in a 90-minute, family friendly, walking tour that takes guests through the five stories of one of Battleship New Jersey’s massive 16″ gun turrets. Visitors will get to stand in the armored gun house where the gun captain oversaw reloading procedures, explore the magazines where 1-ton shells and thousands of powder bags were stored, and pull the triggers in the plotting room where primitive but effective computers aimed the guns over the horizon. This fun for all ages experience includes many hands-on elements that let’s guests see and feel what it was like for a World War II crew member to fire the ship’s guns. Tickets are limited and will sell out quickly.

Evening Guided Tours: Black Sailors @ Battleship New Jersey

Friday, February 25, 2022 at 6PM
Join the Curator of Collection and Exhibits for a 90-minute tour centered around the experiences of Black sailors in the Navy and how the role of minorities changed over time. This walking tour is family friendly and is a precursor to a new exhibit that will launch this year called Stewards of Change. We will visit the ship’s collection spaces to see some of the artifacts and documents that will be on display in the new exhibit, as well as spaces both on and off the tour route where Black sailors lived and worked.
