Be prepared to do a lot of walking should you decide to tour the Wisconsin. My girlfriend and I made this venture in November over the Thanksgiving Day weekend and loved it. Walking the exterior of the ship and taking note of details took us over 2 hours. Once we located the entrance to the interior our excitement peaked. We... More

I have to admit I wasn't sure what to expect from this. went with my 2 kids (ages 14 and 11). My son really likes WW2 naval history, so I thought touring this ship might be something he enjoyed. Turns out the whole family was really wowed by the Wisconsin. The sheer size of the ship, the ability to see... More

We really enjoyed the USS Wisconsin. We took the self guided tour and still saw a ton of stuff. It sure is a wake up callas to how huge the battleship is and how life aboard was conducted.

The ship is well cared for and renovated. They even let you go beneath the decks. It was cool, we spent the whole day here!

I am here at Ft Lee Virginia for 2 weeks and had a weekend to explore. I went to the Norfolk and went to Nauticus and took the gold ticket tour of the USS Wisconsin Battleship. Awesome tour and very good tour guide with a lot of knowledge of the history of this ship. The indoor museum has great areas... More

If you have ever been in the Navy or wondered what life is like aboard a Navy ship this is great! You get to see it first hand from the berthing areas and the officers quarters. Walking on the wooden deck and seeing the ship as a sailor would see it.

We took the self guided tour and were able to access a good portion of the Wisconsin. The upper levels are only accessible on a private tour so it may be worth a little extra to see the rest. We didn't have a lot of time but were still able to see a lot. The Nauticus museum has many displays... More

Great Location, great museum, great ship to tour, you will need several hours. Great for kids about 7 and older. Close to restaurants and the River walk.

Cost for a military member entering was $12.95 for the basic tour, the advanced tour was $35. I took the basic, but while I was onboard they offered an additional 'extra' tour of the galley, and I got to have a look deeper below decks than they usually offer.
