HOST A HISTORIC EVENT ABOARD THE BATTLESHIP NEW JERSEY
The Battleship New Jersey, the US Navy’s most decorated battleship, is a unique and historic facility ready to host your next social, corporate, or special event. From the Battleship’s decks, the skyline of the Philadelphia and Camden Waterfronts provides an extraordinary backdrop for your special occasions. And as you follow in the footsteps of the proud crews of the “Big J,” you’ll appreciate what it must have been like to be a member of the Battleship New Jersey’s crew.
