Visitors on the deck of the Battleship New Jersey


Library Memberships Available

The Battleship has a Library Membership Program, which can allow participating library patrons throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania to visit The World’s Greatest Battleship. Our Library Membership Card allows up to two adults and three children per visit free admission to visit the ship. Library patrons can check out and use the card to visit the most decorated Battleship in U.S. Navy history.

There are dozens of participating libraries in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. The ship has library members as far south as Avalon, as far north as Kearny, and as far west as Chester Springs, PA.

Here is what some of the participating libraries have said:

“By enabling people to visit the ship and learn its history and what life was like while underway, we honor the ship and the men that served on her. Bravo Zulu to you and your staff for all the hard work in keeping those memories alive.”
Norman Gluckman, Director, Avalon Free Public Library

“Our library patrons have found the Battleship passes to be a wonderful benefit for their families.”
Catherine Friedman, Library Assistant, Moorestown Library

“Our patrons use the passes and enjoy visiting.”
Andrea Merrick, Branch Manager, Hopewell Branch, Mercer County Library System
