Take the ferry from Portsmouth to Norfolk and a five minute walk to Nauticus. Located next to Nauticus, the Battleship Wisconsin is one of the largest and last battleships ever built by the U.S. Navy. Otherwise known as the “Wisky,” this ship is a Virginia historical site and served in the Pacific during World War II and the Korean War. After a modernization, she participated in Operation Desert Storm in 1991, before being decommissioned later that year. Explore its deck through a self-guided tour or, with an additional charge, a guided Topside Tour that will take you back in time to experience this majestic ship that earned five battle stars during WW II. The Battleship Wisconsin is included with your admission to Nauticus.
