Even though it was a lot of information regarding old wars, the kids had the opportunity to visualize the reason why war are taking place, and the consequences of it. Also there is an aquarium inside the museum, and the kids where able to pet a horseshoe crap, also shark were in exhibit for petting, but the kids weren't able to do it because the shark were to active. The battleship is a little bit unsafe, we notice couple of thing that could be safety hazards, but as long as you keep good eye on the little ones, and avoid running while in the battleship, you will enjoy the moment and they will do as well.

Had a wonderful time visiting Nauticus today and learning about sharks. My daughter watch the staff feed the sharks, touch a horse-shoe crab, dig for shark teeth, and much more. This is a great place for the family to have fun and learn.

Very well done museum facility with excellent displays and artifacts from many periods of history. Of course, don't forget to visit the battleship.

Went here with my brother in law. The USS Wisconsin was amazing! The martime museum has great displays, information and artifacts. Will come back with my kids next time! They missed out!

My husband and I really enjoyed "touring the Wisconsin" while playing the spy game. We had to gather clues around the ship. It seemed that many others were having as much fun. I'd suggest this activity to inquisitive children through oldsters like us!
