We decided to do something different and go explore with some friends and their young children. The history in this battleship is amazing to experience. It truly makes you appreciate those who have served our country to see what their life was like. Great for kids too!

My father-in-law was in the Navy and spent two years on the USS Wisconsin. The tour of the ship was very informative. We were able to tour most sections of the ship. We are planning another trip so we can bring our grandchildren. The guides provided a great deal of information during the tour.

I can't put into words how much we enjoyed this. My son is a military history buff and was in heaven. A must see!

My daughter was in town....so we decided to tour some sites in Norfolk. The Wisconsin has always been on my list....since my Father served on a ship during the Korean war period. To tour the Wisconsin you have to buy admission to Nauticus...that runs about $36 per person for the guided tour....about $27 per person for the self guided tour.... More

Went to Nauticus over the holiday weekend and included the guided tour of USS Wisconsin as part of my tour. Well worth the extra money as my tour guide was a former crew member of the ship. Captain (ret) Matt Pommer gave an excellent and entertaining tour. He fully engages everyone on the tour and even though it is a... More

The whole family enjoyed our visit and tour. We couldn't believe how much of the ship you could actually explore.

Took the guided tour with my 8 and 9 year old sons. Our guides Matt and Evan couldn't have been nicer or more informative. We learned at the end that Matt actually served on USS Whisky during Desert Storm. His first hand knowledge and experience was priceless. So glad I was able to enjoy and experience this with my family.

When we went to the Wisconsin we enjoyed the entire few hours we were there. We took the guided tour of the Wisconsin itself which included the deck and parts of the inside of the ship. At the time we were there, our guide was a retired member of the crew at one time. The tour was awe inspiring to... More

From the time one enters Nautica until one gets to board the actual ship, it's a long, long walk. Granted they spared no expense and there are tons of exhibits, movies, experiments, kid stuff to do and the ship museum packed with fun facts and things of interest, I was pretty worn out before we got to the ship! If... More
