Tour a battleship, go underwater in a submersible, or pet a few crabs at Nauticus. This educational museum's interactive exhibits teach visitors about the sea and U.S. naval endeavors. Go aboard USS Wisconsin, one of the largest battleships ever constructed by the U.S. Navy. In the Secrets of the Deep exhibit, climb inside a submersible and control the robotic arm that is used to collect items from the sea bed. At Horseshoe Crab Cove, you can handle some of the occupants of Chesapeake Bay. Our Norfolk online itinerary planner makes visiting Nauticus and other Norfolk attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
Nauticus was neat to see. Located next to the water, a park and a parking garage. The building itself is neat to walk around. Located next to the USS Wisconsin. more »
Even a 4 yr. old loved this tour, loved the history & seeing how they lived in the realistic quarters below was a great reminder of the past on The Wisconsin more »
Way more interesting than I thought. Even my wife enjoyed it. I knew I would coming from military family but whole family enjoyed. The museum was very interesting and the Battle ship was awesome. FOR 15.00 GREAT , GREAT VALUE. HEADED BACK TO Pennsylvania happy. Great time eater also. We stayed about 4 hours never lost are interest ... recommend highly
My family had a trip here during our family reunion with 100+ people. We loved it. I loved the ships, the fish and crabs. The children liked the story telling just wanted that new Baby Shark song. They could add more child songs to engage the children. The kids liked the area where the fish was on the floor. It would have been nice to have story telling there.
