Korean War Exhibit Opening and Living History Day! @ Battleship New Jersey
Jun 26 @ 11:00 am – 4:00 pm
Korean War Exhibit Opening and Living History Day! @ Battleship New Jersey
On June 26th as part of Korean War Living History Day, the Battleship is opening a brand-new exhibit on the Korean War in our 400-square foot temporary exhibit space.
The new exhibit, “Battleship New Jersey: The Korean War and Beyond,” is a brief overview of the ship’s active career during the 1950s. Using the ship’s newspaper (The Jerseyman) as a backdrop, the 12-panel exhibit follows the ship from her recommissioning in 1950, through both her tours of duty during the Korean War, and her multiple training cruises, until her decommissioning in 1957.
Six display cases of objects and documents from the museum’s collection that have never been displayed will be used for this exhibit. It will also be the Battleship’s first exhibit installed with multilingual signage (English, Spanish, Korean, and Mandarin Chinese) to make it more accessible to our diverse community and guests. The exhibit will run until June 2023.
For the Battleship’s Korean War Living History Day on June 26, guests will enjoy Korean War artifacts and re-enactors in the Officers’ Wardroom and 1950s music over the Pier’s PA. Free to experience with the purchase of a tour of the Battleship.
