BATTLESHIP NEW JERSEY
“The mission of the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial is to restore, preserve, exhibit and interpret the history of the USS New Jersey and her veterans.”
THE HOME PORT ALLIANCE
The Home Port Alliance for the USS New Jersey. Inc. (Home Port Alliance) is the organization responsible for the restoration and management of the Battleship New Jersey Museum & Memorial, our country’s largest and most decorated Battleship. The Home Port Alliance is a private non-profit organization governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. We are a unique blend of history, education, entertainment and hospitality. While historic preservation and restoration are key missions, exhibition and tourism are integral to funding our goals. This translates to having both a non-profit museum and a fun-filled family attraction.
As a private, 501(c)(3) non-profit, the Battleship New Jersey would not exist without the support of donors and volunteers. It is because of the generosity of individuals, corporations and the public sector that we can continue to maintain the ongoing restoration, preservation and educational programs that take place onboard the ship.
At the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial not only do you see exhibits of artifacts from the ship’s past, but you are put into the exhibit as you go through the tour route. Sit in the chair from which Admiral Halsey commanded the fleet. Stretch out on the bunks where the sailors slept. Climb into the 16” gun turret and learn how the projectiles were loaded.
The Battleship New Jersey, our nation's most decorated battleship, is an 887-foot long, 45,000-ton living window on the most important half-century in U.S. history.
When visitors first witness the Battleship New Jersey, they are amazed at its sheer size. Nearly three football fields long and over 11 stories high, the Battleship New Jersey was the longest battleship ever built.
