The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
For the Battleship’s monthly “Hands On History” program for February, guests touring the Battleship can learn how electricity works. Visitors can see how the ship generates electricity through a motor, how electricity can flow from one component to another, and how electricity can be harmful to the ship if not careful.
The Battleship’s Education Manager will be offering a class on how the ship generates electricity on February 16 from 12pm -2pm in the Officers’ Wardroom. The class is free to attend for any guests touring the Battleship.
On Saturday, May 11, Hands On History will be in the Officers’ Wardroom from 12pm to 2pm for guests touring the Battleship to learn if a concrete boat can float. Also, all guests can make their own aluminum boats to test out different boat designs.
Hands On History is free to experience with any tour of the Battleship.

Order an American Flag to fly over the Battleship on the ship’s website — https://www.battleshipnewjersey.org/product-category/flown-flag/ –and then email firstname.lastname@example.org and request the date that you want a flag flown.
The Flag will be flown on the ship’s main mast, folded and sent to the donor, along with a Certificate of Authenticity.. We’ll fly a 4’x6′ flag for a $62 donation or a 5’x8’ flag for a $100 donation, while supplies last.
