 Big J’s Curator will lead a more “adult-oriented” tour Thursday, July 25 at 6pm


CAMDEN WATERFRONT, NJ – July 22, 2013 – For adults looking for a cool, early

evening activity, the Battleship New Jersey is launching the perfect tour!  The new Twilight Tour, featuring a more adult-oriented tour of our nation’s largest battleship, will take place on Thursday, July 25 during the cooler evening hours. 

“When 55,000 men living aboard this ship during nearly every significant combat period in the 20th century, you are going to get some interesting art work and stories that you just can’t share with everyone touring the Battleship,” explained Jason Hall, Curator of the Battleship. “So we are offering adults the chance to experience the ship in a bit more explicit way than our daytimetours.  And what better time than the cooler evening hours in the summer.”

Mr. Hallwill lead a tour for adults only and show areas of the ship, some notcurrently on the public tour route.  The tour will feature some of the more adult-oriented sailor art, which has been created by the former crew members of the Battleship throughout the years.In addition, he will also share stories of some of the sailor’s escapades that are of a mature nature.

“This is a unique opportunity to have a more adult oriented tour of the Battleship. But I have to stress, there’s nothing overtly graphicinvolved in this tour, just some artwork that you don’t want to necessarily share with the kids,” Mr. Hall added.  The tour, which will be about 90-minutes, will conclude with guests enjoying a cold adult beverage or soft drink on the Main Deck portside as the sun sets over the Philadelphia skyline.

The initial Twilight Tour will launch Thursday, July 25 at 6pm.  Tickets are $34.95 perAdult, and includes a drink at the end of the tour.  Additional beverages can be purchased.  For tickets, visit the Battleship’s website at www.battleshipnewjersey.org or call 1-866-877-6262 ext. 108.

The Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial offers tours daily from 9:30am to 5pm through Labor Day.  Families can spend a unique overnight adventure aboard the Battleship.  The award-winning Overnight Encampment Program offers families, scouts, andyouth organizations the chance to experience a night on board the ship!  Guests enjoy dinner and breakfast served from the Crew’s Galley, a ride on the 4D Flight Simulator Ride, a tour of the ship and the chance to sleep in the bunks that the crew of the USS New Jersey once did!For more information or to book your group’s stay, call 1-866-877-6262 ext. 203.  For moreinformation, call 1-866-877-6262 or 856-
