USS New Jersey (BB-62) – United States Navy Battleship The Battleship New Jersey Museum & Memorial regularly ranks as one of the best museums in New Jersey, one of the things to do in Philadelphia, and serves as an entertaining attraction in New Jersey for families. Not only do you see exhibits of artifacts from the largest battleship’s past, but you are put into the exhibit as you go through the tour route. Sit in the chair from which Admiral Halsey commanded the biggest battleship and the 5th Fleet. Stretch out on the bunks where the sailors slept. Climb into the 16” gun turret and learn how the projectiles were loaded. The New Jersey is one of the most interactive U.S. battleship museums. The Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial serves as a memorial to honor our nation's veterans as well as providing ceremonial, educational, and meeting venues for our active duty members.
