This museum offers something for everyone. I really enjoyed it. I will take people when they visit the area. Clean and entertaining.

We stopped at Nauticus during vacation. I have reviewed that by itself. Great museum. The battleship is amazing. Unreal to see the size of the ship and exploring was fun. They had lots of staff that was more than happy to help and answer questions. Some even sailed on the shop when it was in service, very cool!! You could... More

Please see my reviews about the Nauticus Center as the USS Wisconsin is linked to it. My 16 yo son and I spent nearly 3 hours just touring all of the nooks and cranies of the ship. I would highly recommend it! They also offer a more detailed personalized, guided tour for just a little more money.

This was a great decision to go see this landmark. We are from WI so we had to see our own ship. This thing is so big I was surprised at how big it really was. It was very clean and tidy and organized. The self guided tour was fantastic and everything was well marked. The history was very entertaining... More

I thank my late father for passing on to me his obsession with military history, planes and anything ships. I loved this tour. We spent almost three hours on the boat, investigating any space we could for the "cheap" tour we did. We just bought the cheaper ticket because it still allowed access into quite a few interior spaces and... More

It's a must visit for first timers. Great experience. The Museum Crew were excellant. The ship looks and smells like it is ready to get underway. http://i62.tinypic.com/18eliv.jpg

Imagine you are on a warship, decommissioned not long ago, with nine 16" guns on the turret, apart from other smaller guns, that once blazed and lit the sky to bring the foes to their knees. And that is USS Wisconsin at Norfolk. Though commissioned during second WW, it was in active service as recently as Gulf War and has... More

My husband and I loved the USS Wisconsin tour, it was a great experience to be on a ship of that magnitude with the history it holds. We recommend that you wear sunscreen as you don't realize how much you are on the deck and reflective sun is all over I ended up getting a bit burned in a short... More

This was our first visit to the U. S. S. Wisconson even though we used to live in the area. It was better than expected. The ship was well kept and the vets were more than helpful. We have toured many ships that have been turned into musuems, and this one ranks up there. A must see for anyone who... More

There are vets that served on the Wisconsin and enjoyed talking about it's service, and where more then happy to answer questions and even take pictures. If your info this... More
