Battleship New Jersey

(866) 877-6262

The Battleship New Jersey, the nation's most decorated battleship, is an 887-foot long, 45,000-ton ship built at the Philadelphia Naval Yard and commissioned on May 23rd 1943. The battleship saw action during World War II in the Pacific Theatre at Iwo Jima and Okinawa as flagship for Admirals Spruance and Halsey. Later, the ship served again during the Korean and Vietnam conflicts. The USS New Jersey was decommissioned in 1991 and later moved to Camden where it is now open as a floating museum where visitors walk in the steps of the sailors who served on the ship.
