    This museum is housed in the middle of the Nauticus, which, in my opinion, is good and bad. It's good because it gets the exposure, but not good, because it's presented in a drier manner than the fun ...  more »

    The HRNM is part of the Nauticus complex, but its a great stand alone museum visit because it does the entire HR Naval history and a great depiction of the capture of U-505.  more »

    We got stuck before we even started: The very friendly educator at the front desk took about 20 minutes for a conversation with us about the beginnings of America, the people and ships involved and more. This was really fun - thank you! The exhibition is great, I loved the models and the videos, and the amount of information is just right for about an hour or so.

    A hidden jewel in Nauticus and it's free. Unfortunately the Wisconsin is no longer free. Some neat displays, especially the recreation of the monitors turret.

    Not what I expected, first of all very confusing to find, when you walk in they try to get to you to buy tickets for the battleship tour, if you ask where the museum is they'll begrudgingly tell you, has a few interesting artifacts, would be better if they had more staff dedicated to historical education instead of trying to sell tickets.

    Great place to check out if you are in the area especially during the spring and summer!
