Battleship New Jersey
Audio tours launch throughout the day and feature the ship’s weapons systems and how the crew lived aboard this floating city. Check out the newest exhibit, “A Dreadnaught in Vietnam,” about the Battleship’s experience in the Vietnam War. Then experience combat firsthand as you engage the new 4-D Flight Simulator, a jaw-dropping ride that lets you fly your own Seahawk plane into a dog fight with the enemy and land on the water next to the battleship.
