As a special Valentine’s Day exhibit, guests touring the Battleship this Presidents Day Weekend, can experience a special exhibit of Love Letters in the forward berthing area of the ship. The letters were sent to and by the crew of the USS New Jersey during the 1980s. This new exhibit is free to guests to experience when they purchase a tour.

This weekend, guests touring the Battleship can also enter to win a family four-pack of Harlem Globetrotter tickets for their game at the Wells Fargo Center on Sunday, March 6. Enter to win the tickets at the Ticket Office in the Battleship’s Visitors Center.

Experience the Turret II tour, launching Saturday and Sunday at 11am. This premium guided-tour will take guests five decks down to the bottom of the massive 16-inch gun turret. Along the way, guests will hoist projectiles, load powder bags, plot a firing solution on the working analog computer and even pull the trigger to simulate the firing of these historic guns. Finish your tour with a walk down Broadway, the longest passageway on the Battleship! Turret II tickets are $29.95 per person and can be bought online at
