This is one of the most amazing things you can see when you're in Virginia. We took a guided tour of the observation/control tower which cost about $35 a person, but it was worth it. You get to see parts of the ship that you can't see on the self-guided tour. Our tour guides were named Jim and Bob. They... More

Awesome museum and a piece of american history ,There is very good access to the ship and representation of shipboard life .The stairs are naturally steep and not suited for small children or the elderly. THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING , there are however strategicaly placed fans , on a hot day it can be opressive on or below decks... More

If you've been on a cruise before, you will have an idea of what to expect as far as the size of the ship goes. It is neat to go down inside and see the bunk and their mess hall. It was a beautiful site to see a battleship up close and imagine what it must have been like when... More

This is a very nice tour of a cool ship. It is huge and standing at the front looking back down the deck is incredible.

If you are interested in WWII History, this is one important stop. This was an awesome ship. Just to be able to stand on the Teak deck and think of how much history has transpired. From one end to the other thinking of what went on over the years can really give you pride on the military of this great... More

As a Navy Veteran myself I was nicely surprised and impressed how well this Battleship was preserved. I can not imagine(as I was a carrier sailor)the power and destruction this ship did during its many operations. The staff were many knowledge and friendly and it had a very nice gift shop

Don't miss a tour of the USS Wisconsin - for old and young alike. My 11 year old grandson and I were both in awe of everything we could see and do on this ship. What history! We opted for a guided tour and would highly recommend adding this feature to the self guided tour - for only a few... More

It was a hot June day and I was not sure how well this would go. But, the USS Wisconsin is unbelievable. It is extremely large and I felt like it would never end. The exhibit is almost all open allowing you a good feel about what occurred when going through the ship. It is hard to find your bearings... More

Came here with the whole family and really enjoyed this tour. We really saw what it was like and the room size that was cool. Its still in great shape and set up to really understand the use of everything.

You will not regret visiting the USS Wisconsin and the Nauticus museum. While I anticipated I'd have a good time, I did not expect to be blown away by the experience. You'll not only learn a great deal by visiting the ship and museum, but you'll be paying respect to history. I cannot recommend this strongly enough.
