Curator Ryan Szimanski to Talk About Dry Dock on USS Missouri Website

Curator Ryan Szimanski to Talk About Dry Dock on USS Missouri Website

The Battleship New Jersey’s inaugural drydocking as a museum ship is a historic event. Returning to Drydock 3 at the Philadelphia Navy Yard, where it was originally completed, this marks a significant moment.

Join us to explore the planned scope of work and preliminary measures taken. Given New Jersey’s unique freshwater
berth and its northern location compared to its sister ships, the scope of work is distinct. Don’t miss out!

Visit the Battleship New Jersey in Philadelphia later this year
for drydock tours and further discussions.

February 27  at 5pm EST, or  12pm HST
