The history of this ship is amazing and the staff is quick to tell you about it. As they talk you can feel the pride they have. Make sure you visit all decks and get a feel of what our service men experienced.

Loved it. All around great experience. Good for kids and grown ups. We toured the engine room of the Wisconsin with our 8 year old. He loved it but it might not be for every 8 year old. Explains operations of the ship mechanics. The history of the ship is everywhere below. The victory boat tour was also very enjoyable.

We enjoyed the brief tour of the USS Wisconsin. Just wish we were able to see more. I enjoyed the museum inside and everyone was very friendly.

A walk thru history is what it is like as you walk the decks of the Wisconsin.you have access to multiple deck levels and work and living spaces are preserved as they were in it's heyday. A must for anyone with an interest our naval history.

Great day, even though it was hot seeing this piece of history. Even walked completely around the ship and the first floor. They even have a museum included in the price with plenty of things for children.
