I've never done the guided tour but the ship is impressive, they have also opened up more of the ship now for an excellent experience. Might not be worth it for someone who served in the USN but it is for others.

We toured this as part of our Nauticus visit. We had 3 boys with us, 3, 7, and 12. No one was bored or complained. It was fascinating.

After touring Nauticus and a Victory Rover cruise, we toured the Battleship Wisconsin. We will go back! To stand on the deck of this amazing ship, is an honor and a privilege.

This is a great history lesson. A guided tour reveals many interesting facts about this ship. The deck is made of solid Teak wood.

A must see!! A step back in time that will give you a new found appreciation for how our military served and lived while fighting for our freedom.

I wish I could give 0 circles. This “tour” was extremely restrictive. Not to mention, if you want to see anything, you have to buy a tour. The tour guide was some bootcamp that did one tour and really didn’t show/tell about too much of...More

Very informative tour via the Nauticus Museum. Much better understanding of former and present day Navy sailor ship-board life.

We opted for the tour of the Captain's quarters and Control Center. The tour was 90 minutes, but worth every moment. There was a lot of steep steps to get to the upper decks, so I would not recommend this for mobility-challenged folks. Our guides...More

Thanks to Hurricane Maria, we lost a beach day so we chose to go to the navy museum and tour the battleship Wisconsin. We spent a good 3-4 hours there. Both the museum and battleship were full of information and history. We got to see...More

I would bring a jacket because you are on the waterfront and in Norfolk the joke is what 5 minutes and the weather will change. Also, you may want a scarf in case the wind is up. There really aren't any tight places that I... More

With military discount I think it was $21.95 per ticket. Well worth it.
