Great place to take the kids!

Battleships are huge and kids love them. The USS Wisconsin is part of the Nauticus Museum in Norfolk and it's a great place for kids to explore. You can go below a few decks and... read more

Battleships are huge and kids love them. The USS Wisconsin is part of the Nauticus Museum in Norfolk and it's a great place for kids to explore. You can go below a few decks and they offer guided tours as well. Great way to spend an afternoon.

We are a multi-generational military family and thoroughly enjoyed touring the Wisconsin. We took the self-guided tour and spent at least an hour onboard. Amazing to see those 16" guns and the massive size of the turrets and anchor chains up close! The ship is well-maintained, but be forewarned, it was rather warm and stuffy below decks and it was...

You can spend a whole day here easily (10-5). In fact we didn't catch it all. We could have if we looked at the brochure better and made time for one of the two 3D movies. Luckily I asked if we could come back tomorrow and we were given a pass to do just that (so just ask) Tip: Do... More

I have the utmost respect for those in the armed forces that have spent time on a Navy vessel. I am glad I took the time to tour the USS Wisconsin. My Dad was in the Navy and spent 3 years on one of these ships. I knew when I came to Norfolk, this destination was a must see. While... More

While visiting Noefolk for a convention we had the opportunity to tour the USS Wisconsin. This was one of our highlights while in town. An awesome tour and something we recommend a must see when in Norfolk.

We were in town for a USS Wisconsin reunion. As in the past we were treated very well. Had tours and were able to enjoy the Ship. Will definitely be back.

The USS Wisconsin is an impressive attraction to get a firsthand view of a Navy Ship. Walking up the bow which is approximately 50'+ where you are even with the 6th floor of the building across the street. For Navy families and non-- it serves as a historic monument of just how strong and committed those that serve are to... More

The job done by the volunteers and staff is outstanding!! Our $35 tour of the Engine and Mechanical areas of the ship was very informative and detailed, especially for those that are mechanically minded. It is hard to believe how much preparation and training our US NAVY personnel must have endured to allow a vessel of this size to function... More

We went with friends, 4 of us in total, and we took the engineering tour. The guide was so informative and showed us the steam engines on the ship, explaining in perfect detail, how the steam is created (water, heat, pressure), then dried,and transported in order to be used in the engines. It was explained so well that anyone with... More
