Battleship New Jersey is America's most decorated warship.
Through World War II, the Korean War, Vietnam and the Gulf War, the Iowa-class Battleship New Jersey earned an unprecedented 19 Battle and Campaign Stars for outstanding service.
Today, the battleship is preserved to how it was when it was decommissioned for the fourth and final time in 1991, and it is America’s most decorated battleship.
Visitors are immersed in the battleship’s past when taking a tour. Guests can sit in the commander’s chair and check out the Combat Engagement Center (CEC), where all weapons were launched and tracked aboard the ship.
The CEC features a C-Whiz defense gun shoot, video of the tomahawk missile launch and more.
Families and youth groups can even spend a night aboard the ship. The overnight encampment program features breakfast and dinner in the mess halls, a chance to sleep in bunks used by sailors and time to check out areas of the ship that are unseen during regular daytime tours.
