I love this place so much- I actually got married here because of it's connection to the military and it's awesome location. A lot of history is also on display so I recommend that people check it out and soak in the experience.

We took the ferry from Portsmouth Virginia. We are glad we did. They have a museum to check out, then the decommissioned USS Wisconsin. I enjoyed climbing around the USS Wisconsin. It gave me insite and perspective on how our service men and woman battled for our freedom. Visiting this site is an all day event. Go early, rain or... More

I will start by the sticker shock, the VIP package is over $30 per adult and the other limited package without your guide is $15 (with a family that can add up if on a budget). Small discount for kids. Went with the $15 package for all and left filled will knowledge, and appreciation for our service men and women.... More

The tour guides are great and have some of the funniest back stories. They made my 10 year old son feel very special by letting him sit in the captains chairs.

As a Navy Officer, I can tell you that this was fun to take my family on. I joined shortly after this ship was decommissioned, but this is a true look into life aboard Navy ships, even today. The only difference between this and ours is technology. That being said, for the price, you cannot beat this. You are free... More

The USS Wisconsin, outside of the Missouri, is arguably one of my top-two battleships that we have toured. A must see for those interested in US Navy ships. The extended tour is well worth the investment. Definitely a must see anytime one is in the Virginia Beach area.

What an awesome adventure to be aboard such a mighty ship! The staff were amazing, and helpful if you have any questions. Much of the ship was available to wander around in even on the basic ticket. This would not be a good option for people who have trouble with stairs or obstacles. It was awesome to actually go into... More

My wife & I opted to tour the USS Wisconsin on a whim while in Virginia Beach area. We paid for the extended guided tour led by Sandy & brought up by Don. Both retired Naval officers who volunteered their time as tour guides. Both were very knowledgeable and great speakers, the extra money from their guided tour being used... More

Wow, I enjoyed this; it is a perfect tie-in with Nauticus next door; you can wander all over this ship and see so much. I recommend it heartily!
