Presidents Day Weekend on the Battleship @ Battleship New Jersey
This Presidents Day Weekend, walk the decks that Presidents walked! Even check out President Ronald Reagan’s flag, on display in the Officers’ Wardroom.
The Battleship has also added the guided Engineering Steam to Speed Tour at 11am and the guided Turret II Tour at 1pm on Presidents Day, Monday, Feb. 17.
Further, on Monday, Feb. 17, the Battleship will recognize the 76th Anniversary of Operation Hailstorm. On Feb. 17 and 18, 1944, there was a massive air and surface strike on Truk Lagoon. This would be the first time that the Battleship New Jersey would fire her 16-inch guns in anger. To commemorate this event, we will be posting in real time on Twitter the events of the battleship and of others involved. Additionally, Curator Ryan Szimanski will be leading the 1 pm Turret II tour, which will be longer than usual and discuss Operation Hailstone in addition to talking about the 16-inch guns. The lecture is free for members and all guests with Fire Power self-guided tour tickets. The lecture will be live-streamed on our Facebook page. Members get 30% off the Turret II tour.
Finally, each day during Presidents Day Weekend, guests can register to win the DVD “The Ultimate Guide to the Presidents,” donated by The History Channel. Guests can enter in the Ship’s Store.
