The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
Fire a salute from the Battleship’s saluting gun every Saturday during the summer from 12pm to 2pm. Just a $50 donation allows you to pull the trigger to fire a salute from our portside (Philadelphia-side) saluting gun!
Want a bigger bang? For a $500 donation, you can pull the trigger to fire the portside 5-inch gun!
Schedule your salute at https://www.battleshipnewjersey.org/visit/purchase-tickets/ or see our Ticket Office on Saturday morning.
All proceeds from the shoots go to the on-going restoration of the Battleship, a non-profit museum and memorial.
Thanks to everyone who purchased a ticket to toast New Jersey craft beer aboard the Battleship! Our annual NJ Beer Festival for Saturday, July 24, has sold out!
The VIP Session on the fantail will open for guests with VIP tickets at 12pm. The General session will take place from 1pm to 5pm.
Get to the Battleship early because your NJ Beer Festival tickets also include a Fire Power self-guided tour of the ship. The tour is approximately one hour to one-and-a-half hours.
We’ll also have live music by the Cabin Dogs, great food and more!
Note: The Battleship will follow current NJ COVID guidelines at the time.
Join Battleship educators for a day of learning aboard the Big J!
On Wednesday, July 28, at 9am, students and their parents can experience a guided tour of the Battleship and a classroom-style lesson.
This month the tour will include the main battery 16-inch guns, the plotting room used to aim the guns, and the Combat Information Center, where targets were selected. Guests will also have the chance to do the math by hand and figure out how to find the distance to an enemy target.
Admission is a $5 donation for all. Adults are required to stay with children for their entire visit.
This program is recommended for grades 3-8.
