The Battleship New Jersey hosts many private and public events on the ship.
Check out what public events are coming up on our calendar.
NOTE: THE US COAST GUARD HAS MOVED UP THE TIME FOR THE EAGLE, WHICH IS NOW PROJECTED TO PASS THE BATTLESHIP BETWEEN 11:30AM AND 12:30PM.
The Battleship New Jersey will fire her 5-inch gun to salute the arrival of the US Coast Guard Cutter Eagle, which will pass the Battleship between 11:30am to 12:30pm today, Friday, Sept. 27.
All guests touring the Battleship at that time are welcome to watch the Eagle as she passes and the Battleship’s gun salute. Food and beverages will be available to purchase on the Main Deck Portside before and after the Eagles passes.
The majestic sailing ship, the Coast Guard Cutter Eagle, provides USCG Academy cadets and officer candidates with their first taste of sea and salt air. Built in Germany in 1936 and re-commissioned by the United States at the close of World War II, the EAGLE is the largest active tall ship flying the Stars and Stripes. The Eagle will dock at Penn’s Landing in Philadelphia for the weekend.
Adults can learn about the mature-side of the Battleship with this Curator-led tour of the dark Battleship! All guests will receive a complimentary flashlight to guide them through the ship as they check out sailor art and hear adult tales. Complete your tour with a cold beer, glass of wine or soft drink on the deck.
Tours for adults only are $34.95. Purchase your tickets here or call 866-877-6262 ext. 108.
