When we went to the Wisconsin we enjoyed the entire few hours we were there. We took the guided tour of the Wisconsin itself which included the deck and parts of the inside of the ship. At the time we were there, our guide was a retired member of the crew at one time. The tour was awe inspiring to... More

From the time one enters Nautica until one gets to board the actual ship, it's a long, long walk. Granted they spared no expense and there are tons of exhibits, movies, experiments, kid stuff to do and the ship museum packed with fun facts and things of interest, I was pretty worn out before we got to the ship! If... More

My son and I toured the USS Wisconsin, and had a very good time! I recommend paying for the guided tour, our tour guides were great. It is well worth the money. We spent over three hours there. Excellent, excellent, excellent!!!!!

The USS Wisconsin is a very nicely restored battleship. I would like to see her fire a full broadside salvo. A few years ago I saw her sister ship the USS New Jersey. Two down and two to go. The USS Iowa and the USS Missouri.

Amazing ship. Tour is great, helpful tour guides on the boat, but also you can walk around by yourself and check everything out.

The dedicated paid and volunteer staff really care about this old Battleship. One of 4 Iowa Class battleshipsthe Wisconsin has seen action in the Pacific after its 1944 commissioning and again later in Korea. Decommissioned in 1957, she was mothballed until the 1980s. The boatswain pipes a different announcement every hour. Semi Private tours of the quarter deck, and engine... More

If you are interested in warships and Naval history you will not be disappointed. We have taken the VIP tour including a guided tour and a visit in the museum. Overall a four hour stay without noticing the time passing by.

Great guide, Beautiful Ship, Gives (HOPEFULLY) people an appreciation for what has been given for this Country!! The museum needs at least a couple of hours for children to enjoy the entire complex in addition to the ship itself.

Always a great experience. Many of the volunteers actually served on the ship. Don't miss this floating and talking piece of history!!

This is a retired US Navy warship that has been opened and adapted for tours and for a view about how life on a battleship existed. The ship is in beautiful condition. There are self guided tours of the main deck and spaces or guided tours by the "old salts" who may have served on the ship at one time.... More
