Battleship New Jersey in Camden is hosting a 90-minute, knowledgeable, family-friendly walking tour that takes guests through the five stories of one of Battleship New Jersey’s massive 16-inch turrets at 6 p.m. Friday. Visitors will be able to stand in the armored weapons room where the firearms captain oversaw reloading procedures, explore the stores where one-ton shells and thousands of bags of powder were stored, and press the triggers in the plotting room where primitive but efficient computers aimed guns above the horizon. This fun experience for all ages includes many hands-on elements that allow guests to see and feel what it was like for a WWII crew member to shoot the ship’s cannons. Tickets are limited and will sell out quickly. For more information visit https://visitsouthjersey.com/events/evening-guided-tours-turret-ii-2/.
