Great piece of history and amazing battle ship to see. The cost is a bit overpriced for what you get. They have two options, self guided tours and guided tours. The guided tours come in two option (above and below the deck) and you only get one for the price. I thought the tour was worth it, but a bit... More

There are not many of these monsters left to see. The Wisconsin is in great shape and you can see a lot of the ship. A tour is a bit pricey for a family, but may be worth it. That way you all will get more out of it. It is very strongly recommended that, if you are bringing children... More

I did the self guided tour that came along with the admission fee for Nauticus itself. It was an amazing sight to see up close., especially when standing on the ship itself. The firepower power and just strength of the ship is impressive. What adds even more excitement to the tour is the fact that you are able to not... More

We took the self guided tour. My husband is retired Air Force but flew missions on the USS George Washington during Desert Storm. I had never had the opportunity to go onboard a vessel and see how the crew live and what if feels like to be living in such close quarters. The museum has lots of information along with... More

What an awesome ship! It was an amazing tour to be on a ship that has been involved in four wars. Those turrets were just humongous! I can just imagined the fear it brought on the enemy.

It is a great tour to do, they have volunteers to tell you all about it. Some of them were the actual fleet of the ship, a nice way to spend some time and learn about it.

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.
