2015 Museum Tour You Haven't Taken

Battleship New Jersey

This 70-plus-year-old vessel, originally built at the Philadelphia Naval Shipyard, saw action in World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, making it the country’s most decorated battleship. These days you can be led down its steep ladders and through its tight passageways by knowledgeable veterans, many of whom were on active duty on this very ship.
