My son and I recently visited the Nauticus after visiting it perhaps 10 years ago. I would definitely say the museum has something for all ages. He's a 16 year old history buff and we spent at least 2.5 hours self touring the deck and various levels of the USS Wisconsin. Tons of information! Inside there are many many hands on activities for little ones from playing dress up in various sailor uniforms to a hands on shark petting exhibit or horseshoe crab display. I highly recommend a stop at the Nauticus if you are in Norfolk or looking for a quick day trip from the beach. It is also in walking distance to several chain restaurants - Joe's Crab Shack, Outback, Hooters - which all share a river view. There is also a closely neighborhood on Grandby Street with many smaller local options. Nearby hotels include the Sheraton and a Marriott.
