We spent 3 hours between the Wisconsin and the museum. I loved the museum, very unique and appeals to many. The VIP tour on the Wisconsin was worth the extra money. The volunteers are so knowledgeable.

We really enjoyed the tour of the battleship and museum. It was a great history lesson and great time enjoying a more modern ship.

I took my wife here when she came up from Florida to visit. Being a retired Marine and spending a lot of my career on Naval ships, I was able to explain the capabilities of this ship and all of the spaces. Great historical visit.

This was part of the the Nauticus museum. We really enjoyed touring the ship. The kids loved the maze of the ship and the adults loved the history of it.

Any (military - naval) history buff should pay a visit here. It is well located. Not far from where the Navy Base tours depart. Next to Nauticus

We are lucky to have this retired battleship to tour. We took the self guided tour and were able to access most areas of this ship. We enjoyed imagining life aboard the ship, seeing the sleeping quarters, chow lines, dentist office, etc. We also enjoyed...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.
