We never would have dreamed that we could walk and explore the USS Wisconsin, but we did! We walked from one end to the other and were amazed at the actual size of the ship. Trying to imagine our Navy Soldiers as they battled our enemies and wondering what their lives were like aboard this ship. It was a privilege... More

I visited the Wisconsin as a part of my husband's Navy reunion, and was able to get a bit of an idea of what it was like on his ship. You can see much of the ship, including the sleeping quarters and the other places the crew spent their time. I hadn't realized how treacherous the stairs were going to... More

Massive warship with a fascinating history. Much of the vessel can be explored and it is an extremely impressive piece of kit. I would have liked to have had more signs as I felt I was wandering around below deck at times wondering if I'd ever find my way back to daylight. It and the museum, Nauticus, are well worth... More

The USS Wisconsin is one of my favorite museums I have ever been too. The ship is living history! It is perfectly restored to look just how it looked at the end of the 1st Gulf War. The inside looks just as good as the outside! I learned a lot about the battleship as well as about the rest of... More

Do not expect to be able to get to know it all. We have gone to the ship stationed at Wilmington, N.C on that one you can see it all. But this one is very impressive. Or I should say: "she" is lol Loved the view you can get from the museum.

This was our last stop on our roadtrip and it was worth every dollar. We got there just in time to see everything and it was a great treat for my daughter and the other big kid ( my husband)

I have always been fascinated by military battleships and submarines. My Netflix "recently watched" selection is full of interesting historical documentaries, but I had never seen a battleship in person until about a week and a half ago when I visited the USS Wisconsin and had the privilege of walking around and exploring the beautiful ship. If you don't know... More
