  • It is 'free' in that it is part of the paid admission to Nauticus. Those two, along with access to the Wisconsin, is well worth the admission price if you are interested in naval history. This part of...  more »
  • Until you stand on the pier and look up at this massive ship you don't really realize how big 887.2 ft and 52,000 tons is. No cost and you can walk right up and get a picture with the ship!  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.
  • Many cool models to see! A lot of memorabilia. Excellent stop.
  • Great place to check out if you are in the area especially during the spring and summer!
