“Naticus War Museum and the USS Wisconsin is a must see!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2012 via mobile

Although I was not totally excited about going through the war museum at first, it turned out to be an awesome experience. The Musuem was outstanding including the gentleman telling stories as if he was still on the USS Wisconsin. The history of objects collected, how they displayed the missles, warheads and land mines were incredible. You enter the USS Wisconsin via the Naticus but seeing the ship is an experience. You were only able to visit one level of the ship but nonetheless it was something that should not be missed.

“Catch a glimpse of history”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2012

Ear phones are provided that you listen too as you walk through this self-paced tour. Only the deck portions of the ship are accessible, which was a little disappointing, but the commentaries were well worth the trip. They were all made from previous sailors on the vessel who talked about their time aboard. Walking around on the deck, you get a feel for what it was like to be on board when it was operable.

The ship is accessible through Nauticus. Its well worth the time to see.

“Nice Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

Great tour of the USS Wisconsin ship. It was self guided so you can tour at your leisure. Seems like a very popular tour, you enter via the Naval Meseum on the second floor. Was able to take plenty of pictures of the weapons and differrent parts of the ship. A guided tour would be nice as an option, because there were some things we had questions on or were curious about but did want to walk around trying to find someone to answer. Other than that, a nice tour and recommended to visit on a non windy day.
