A must see for anyone who wants to connect with the Naval history of the East coast and the Norfolk area. A great tour is offered

I liked that you can get on the battleship and walk around it's really amazing to be on something that was in ww2 what I didn't like was that you have to park in a parking garage but it's across the street and it costs $5 to park in there

Great to be able to go on a Naval ship and explore all there is to see and great museum right on the water front in Norfolk.

Honestly I am kinda disappointed with my tour of the ship. The museum next door which is included with your admission is really good and informative. However the tour of the ship itself is disappointing. Most you get to see with the general admission ticket is the main deck, some enlisted berthing, officer's staterooms, and some ship spaces. You can... More

This is an extremely interesting site to see right in the heart of the Norfolk shore (which is downtown)! Easy to get and well worth visiting.

I served in the era of the great might battleships and had to visit. When in the service I had only been topside on USS Iowa and always wanted to see a real battleship. There were two tour options and we chose the topside tour and walked through the rest of the ship. The tour guides were very knowledgeable and... More

I did a tour on the inside of the ship and I enjoyed it very much. Thanks a lot to the tour guides. They gave us a lot of background information on the ship and the life on board. I'm happy that I did the tour and would definitely recommend to do so, not just the self guided tour. Many... More

One of the few things to explore in downtown Norfolk. With you ticket, you get to visit the museum, a 3D movie on Coral Reefs and the actual USS Wisconsin ship. The museum itself is very interesting though I was not very impressed with the ship. I have been to other ships where you get to see more of the... More

If you've ever wanted to see and board, a Navy battleship, you'll love the USS Wisconsin. It's huge! We were able to go below deck and see some of the officers quarters, mess hall and more. One tip though, visit when the weather is cooler. It's like being in an oven during the summer. Great tourist attraction.

Arrived at Nauticus to tour the battleship USS Wisconsin. We paid $14.95p.p. for the self guided tour, which gave you access to alot of the ship, which we found was more than enough for us .Found touring the ship, which is massive, very interesting and educational.There is nothing like a hands on experience. Be sure to talk to any members... More
