The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
The Battleship is currently not accepting any new reservations for the New Year’s Overnight. Thanks to all the families that reserved their bunks! Have a great night aboard the Big J!
Families can experience the First Night of 2019 aboard the Battleship New Jersey! Our award-winning overnight program features dinner and breakfast served at the chowline, a guided tour of the Battleship, the chance to fire a saluting gun and the opportunity to sleep in the bunks that the crew of the USS New Jersey once did.
Further, at midnight, all guests can enjoy the amazing view of the SugarHouse New Year’s Eve Fireworks on the Waterfront!
The First Night overnight is $79 per person. Guests must be part of a family, which means at least one parent or guardian and one child age 6 – 17.
