Evening Tour: Guns, Speed, and Armor

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday January 15

6:00 PM  –  8:00 PM

Join our curator for a special guided tour of the ship focusing on the battle of Truk Lagoon.

On February 16, 1944, at 1547, USS New Jersey opened fire with her main battery on an enemy ship. Guests will go through the ship's 6in armored deck into the citadel that protects the most essential components of the ship. Once inside the citadel, guests will see the inside of a 16in gun turret and the Mk 8 electro-mechanical analog computer that fired these guns over the ship's fifty years of service. Guests will also take a look into the rarely seen gun director that helped aim these guns. 

• All guests will be screened in the Visitors Center before entering the Battleship’s Pier, must wear a face covering and practice social distancing.
