The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
Kids: Win a prize when you pull the Battleship’s rubber duck – our very own Captain Quack — from the pond, or in our case; a large bucket! Each Captain Quack is worth a prize, including Battleship Dog Tags. Beach Balls, postcards or pencils. The contest will take place in the Gift Shop of the Battleship and will run Saturday and Sunday, March 24 and 25, respectively, as well as Easter Weekend.
Also, all kids who stop in the Battleship Gift Shop will get a free Easter Marshmallow Peep, courtesy of Just Born Candies! Good while supplies last.
Experience Vietnam War artifacts, re-enactors, veteran interviews and even late 1960s music over the pier’s PA during the Battleship’s annual Vietnam War Living History Day, Saturday, April 6 from 10am to 3pm.
Vietnam artifacts will be available for guests to check out in the Officers’ Wardroom, while re-enactors will be throughout the ship. Our curatorial staff will also interview Vietnam vets, who will share their experiences during the war. All activities are free for guests to experience with the purchase of a Turret II guided tour or a Fire Power audio tour.
The Battleship welcomes any Vietnam War artifact or military vehicle owner or re-enactor to participate in this annual event. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 866-877-6262 ext. 144.
The USS New Jersey was commissioned for Vietnam on April 6, 1968. She was the only battleship that saw action off the coast of Vietnam in 1968. Guests touring the Battleship can experience an exhibit that features her commission as part of the Battleship’s Fire Power Tour.
