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

the Battleship is currently closed for tours due to the coronavirus.  The ship will reopen once it’s

deemed safe by the state of New Jersey.  Even though our nation’s most decorated battleship is

closed, people can still experience a virtual tour from home! Visit:  https://youtu.be/kDOFBGIf6Uo
