We were pleasantly surprised at the great museum that accompanied the tour of this battleship. We learned about life on board, history of the battles as well as marine life in the area. Well worth a visit.

Bottom Line Up Front. While you must enter the battleship through the Nauticus complex, this is a review of the battleship Wisconsin only. 1. Expectations. As a retired Marine Corps Infantry Officer and military history enthusiast, I have had the privilege of visiting many military museums and floating museums of this type so I tend to have high expectations.

Had a great time! So awesome seeing this great warship. Just FYI, if you've never been on one, it gets a little warm down inside but not too bad. And the steps going from one level to another are more like ladders. Just in case thats an issue. Overall it was a great time, I could've spent the whole day... More

The Wisconsin was an amazing experience. One of the best parts was discussing the Wisconsin with someone who actually served aboard the vessel. Unfortunately, as these veterans age, those encounters are likely to become fewer. This was truly one of those places where history can be felt.

Mike D wrote a review on this beautiful vessel but called it a "destroyer". Having served aboard this 'BATTLESHIP" in the 50's it hurts to read anyone calling her a destroyer.

One of the few places to board a historic WWII ship. Very impressive even from the outside! But the inside tours are really expensive - someone has to pay to keep such a giant ship floating.

So interesting! Great place to take children and teach history! The ship is enormous. Very nice experience. Connected to the Nauticus with tons of children activities. 3D movie and hands-on exhibits in Nauticus

It makes you proud to be an American when you tour this magnificent destroyer. You're able to tour above and below deck. The men and women who served on the Wisconsin didn't have the most comfortable accommodations, and you can see their small personal space. Seeing the mess hall was pretty neat. Go to Nauticus, see the ship, and tour... More

We took our 3rd and 6th graders to this museum on our recent trip to Norfolk and they loved it. There is lots of hands on things inside and the kids really enjoyed the self guided tour of the ship as well.
