I had the opportunity to tour this ship for a second time. Each time I pick up more and more facts from this beautiful warship. The staff are helpful and are willing to take the time to educate you as a visitor. Not to be missed while in Norfolk.

We did the self guided tour and some parts of the ship were off limits for that. We did get to explore the deck and the lower levels and got to see where the crew and Officers slept and had their meals as well as a lot of other rooms. You must be able to go up and down ladders... More

This was a fabulous attraction. The ship is stunning and it was really interesting to see the inner workings and living conditions. You need to be physically capable of climbing ladders, stairs and tolerate heat to go below. I definitely recommend exploring the USS Wisconsin

Wonderful tour of this Iowa class battleship! Staff that mans the ship are retired servicemen some of which actually served on the Wisconsin in WWII. Great to hear their stories and insights! Well done and well worth the visit!

I like the exhibits in the museum and the displays that visitors and interact with. It makes you realize more of the US Naval history than you may realize. A lot of information to read about and historical facts. Recommend allowing at least 4 hours to allow enough time to take in and explore the museum and the USS Wisconsin... More

Whenever we have friends come to visit,the Wisconsin and the Nauticus are a standard stop. And even after four or five visits, it is always impressive. Kudos to the volunteers and staff who maintain and expand this marvelous piece of history. Each time we have returned, there has been something new to see: the XO cabin, the cafeteria, the chapel,...

This ship is huge, thats one way to describe it. Walking around will probably take you an hour and you can look at the cabins that were used as well as work areas and the mess. There is also an aquarium in the building next to it which can be included in the price. The guides are happy to answer... More
