Touring the USS Wisconsin was amazing! It was a unique experience getting to look into the lives of those who have served on the seas. If you’re in town, you definitely need to check it it! Oh, and they have lodging on the USS Wisconsin!

I was very happy to be able to share the Wisconsin's history with a two year old and four year old. They sat in a double stroller, and after a long time at the Nautica museum, this was probably the only way to do the...More

I have stopped to photograph this boat many times. I honestly enjoyed viewing it from the harbor (which is free) as much as I did actually going onto the boat. Its amazing to see and walk on.

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 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.
