Since 1973 The Submarine Memorial Association, a non-profit organization, has operated the NJ Naval Museum and the USS LING as a permanent memorial to the men who served and died in the submarine service. It also serves as a tribute to the Garden State’s long and distinguished Naval heritage.
The museum offers visitors the opportunity to view rare historic equipment and artifacts, photographs and other memorabilia. It also includes a shrine to the 3,505 men who made the supreme sacrifice in the defense
of their country in World War II. The museum has served as an educational facility
for many schools, Scout troops and other organizations who appreciate and support the mission of this organization to preserve
this piece of history.
Recently the North Jersey Media Group, which owns the land we currently occupy, has asked the museum to leave so that
they may sell or develop the property. Closing the museum would be a tremendous
loss for the residents of New Jersey and the hundreds of people throughout the Tri-state area who visit every year.
