The Wisconsin is berthed at the Nauticus Museum; a visit requires purchase of a Museum ticket (discounts include seniors & vets). The museum is Interesting, but it's not the highlight -- the USS Wisconsin is. Wisconsin was staffed with several volunteers who served on board...More

Worth every minute in the battleship. Began by saying we have few opportunities to explore a ship with the history and provenance presented here. The docents know everything about the ship and enjoy answering questions. This was a great experience.

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.
