“Nice Tour”
4 of 5 bubbles 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.

Really well done museum and tour, I would recommend it to everyone. Retired Sailors do the tour as guides are the best!

“A very Historic Ship”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

We were given a quick tour and told the history of the Ship. If you like military history you have to visit this ship. And they are opening more and more of the ship up to tours unlike years ago when only a very small part of the ship was allowed to be shown.

“Lots to explore, great deal with Nauticus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2012

Last time I was there the Wisconsin was an extra fee, but now you get both for a reasonable rate. Kids (and adults) really enjoyed exploring the battleship.
