Firepower tour tickets are available to use at any date and time we are open for tours.
This overall view of the Battleship NJ takes guests 5 levels up and two decks below. The Main Deck features an Exhibit Museum that encompasses the 48 years in and out of service. Guides are available for questions in the Captain’s Quarters and CEC.
The Battleship New Jersey will extend the current Fire Power self-guided tour, with a free 20-minute guided Tour of the ship’s Engine Room, beginning Saturday, August 1 from 11am to 3pm.
The free extended tour will begin in the crew’s mess, which is near the end of the current Fire Power tour. Guests will get to walk through both fire room two with two of the ship’s eight boilers and engine room two
with one of the ship’s turbine units that turns one of the four propellers and two turbo generators, which create electrical power for some of the 1,000 motors on the ship.
Guests will see the throttle board where speed was controlled and burners where fuel consumption was controlled. They will get to go down to the hold and look up at one of the ship’s massive propeller shafts.
But hurry to take advantage of the free extended Engine Room tour. It will only be available for a limited time.
To celebrate the addition of the Engine Room tour, the Battleship will offer salutes throughout the day. Guests touring the ship will be randomly drawn to pull the trigger to fire the portside (Philadelphia-side) saluting gun on
the hour from 11am to 3pm.
Want to guarantee you’ll fire the saluting gun? A $50 donation to the Battleship, a non-profit museum and memorial, will allow the donor to fire the gun any time on Saturday.
The Battleship is continuously cleaned and disinfected. All guests, as well as Battleship employees, must pass a health check which includes a contactless temperature check, must wear a face covering and practice social distancing of six feet while at the Battleship.
