2012 Historic Attraction

Battleship New Jersey

Forty-five thousand tons of meticulously preserved American-made fighting steel that saw combat in World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam and the Lebanese civil war, now docked on the Camden waterfront. The awe-inspiring tours, which take you into the bowels of the massive ship, are definitely not for the claustrophobic.
