USS Wisconsin, Norfolk
(4.6/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Embark on a guided or self-guided tour of USS Wisconsin, one of the largest battleships the U.S. Navy has ever constructed. The giant, decommissioned battleship, known as "Wisky," was launched Dec. 7, 1943, and served in World War II and the Korean War. Take a tour of the deck, which runs just over 270 m (887 ft). Then choose from two guided tours of the interior of the ship: The Topside Tour provides a look at the administration area, radio room, captain's cabin, and combat engagement center. The Main Street USN Tour gives you a glimpse into the life of a common sailor aboard the ship, where you'll see the ship's laundry, bakery, doughnut shop, and galley. Put USS Wisconsin on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Norfolk trip itinerary planner.

  • The kids thought this place was AWESOMEly cool! Worth every penny we paid for admission!
  • We did the smaller tour of Nautilus, naval museum, and the self guided tour of the UUS Wisconsin. A decent value. The self guided Wisconsin tour included the deck, inside a turret, and some of the ship's interior. I wish it would have included the control bridge. I would also suggest the ship have more signs describing the rooms and features because most of the time we had no idea what we were looking at.
  • Its a good place to visit to know about the history. It would have been nice to see the cockpit and top level, but it was not allowed.
  • Fantastic piece of history, and loved getting lost inside the ship on our self-guided tour. More formal tours are offered at scheduled times.
  • Very big and impressive. Lots of things to do and see inside
