Always saw this ship going to work and decided on a whim to take a tour. Best decision ever! Our guide was Matt who had previously been deployed and there was never a lack of information. Spoiler alert: I'm his daughter

It was so awesome to see this magnificent ship that's named after my home state. Very interesting to see how our Sailors live and work when they are aboard.

we took our grandchildren on the ship they simply loved it. So fascinating. It was like going back in the past. Good educational day but a lot of fun.

We have a first grader and he loves visiting both the battleship and the museum. We always try to catch the 3-D movie about the aircraft carrier. We visit at least once a month and love it!

So neat to explore the Battleship Wisconsin! Tickets to Nauticus include a self-guided tour of the battleship, so it is a great value. View the 7 minute movie in the Nauticus before touring for a brief history of the battleship. Just wish I had known...More

I would bring a jacket because you are on the waterfront and in Norfolk the joke is what 5 minutes and the weather will change. Also, you may want a scarf in case the wind is up. There really aren't any tight places that I... More

With military discount I think it was $21.95 per ticket. Well worth it.
