Hands On History Features Foul Weather Gear for January @ Battleship New Jersey
How did sailors manage in the cold weather?
During World War II, the ship’s heating was not nearly as good as it is today, try on some of their coats and hats, and see for yourself if you can keep warm. Throughout her history, the ship spent most of her time in warm climates, avoiding the chill by staying near the equator; however, she couldn’t avoid it all together, including a particularly cold commissioning ceremony in Norfolk, Virginia in November of 1950.
Check our actual Navy foul weather gear in the Captain’s In-port Cabin throughout the month of January as part of the Fire Power tour.

Building History in January: Navigation @ Battleship New Jersey
Jan 18 @ 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
Building History in January:  Navigation @ Battleship New Jersey
In honor of our new exhibit, USS New Jersey: Past, Present and Future, this month’s Building History project is focused on the first USS New Jersey, BB-16, which was in commission from 1906 to 1920, and the new submarine, SSN-796.
 While many things were the same across all three ships, the biggest differences were in the technology. In this program you can learn how to navigate using a sextant and look at charts of the places that both battleships visited. You can also make your own periscope, something that not just the newest New Jersey, an attack submarine, has.
Every Saturday and Sunday in January, in the Crew’s Mess.  Free with Admission.
