“From a retired sailor”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

Visit this attraction along with Nauticus National Maritime Center. You won't be disappointed. This Battleship has such a history even those land lubbers that never went to sea would enjoy it.

“A real marvel”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

This ship is so massive, it boggles the mind. They have a great tour above and below the waterline. The city has done a great job of maintaining her

“Super big ship.”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

We were able to see the ship on the outside, but since we had to travel home, we were not able to wait for the museum to open, or go onto the ship itself. We did, however, get information about the USS Wisconsin from the postings around the dock. There's a really nice park next door, too.
