We were able to see the ship on the outside, but since we had to travel home, we were not able to wait for the museum to open, or go onto the ship itself. We did, however, get information about the USS Wisconsin from the postings around the dock. There's a really nice park next door, too.

This was the highlight of our entire trip. My entire family was just overwhelmed by the size and history of the ship.

It was great to walk around such an amazing ship with so much history, spanning such a wide range in modern warfare history. We did the self guided tour and it took maybe 2 hours to walk around and see everything. It looks like the organized tours take you more places. Some of the stairways up and down the interior of the ship were very steep and difficult for small children, but possible with close supervision.

I stopped in here right after a work appointment near by. The ship is truly impressive and a wonderful piece of history. Used since 1943, it was also the first ship to fire Tomahawk missiles in the first war in Iraq. Gained a newfound appreciation for our military as I walked through the ship.
