Nauticus & Battleship Wisconsin
Located in downtown Norfolk, The Nauticus Museum and adjacent Battleship Wisconsin offer a wealth of interactive exhibits, weaponry, underwater artifacts, detailed ship models and tours highlighting the region’s importance in our country’s Naval history and maritime life.

Visit the Battleship Wisconsin berthed next door to see one of the largest and last battleships ever built by the U.S. Navy. Explore its deck through a self-guided, or audio, tour that will take you back in time to experience this majestic ship that earned five battle stars during World War II.
