Since there are no fireworks this Independence Day over the Delaware River, the Battleship will have her own fireworks! From 10am to 4pm, on the hour, a guest touring the ship on July 4th can pull the trigger of the portside saluting gun and render a salute to our great nation! We’ll announce the winner’s name over our 1MC (PA) system.

Or for a $50 donation, we’ll let you pull the trigger for your own salute. Just ask our Ticketing rep about donating to fire the saluting gun.

On July 4th, guests can also check out a model of the Battleship displayed on the Patricia Egan Jones Pier. All kids will also get a mini flag, available in the Battleshop gift store, located landside in the Visitors Center.

At 2pm, we’ll also ring the ship’s bell 13 times. The Battleship will join other museums and historic landmarks in ringing the bell as part of the Let Freedom Ring progam.

The Battleship is open for tours from 10am to 4pm every day, including July 4th. Free parking along Clinton St.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at, or you can purchase at our Ticket Office inside the Visitors Center upon arrival.
