Nauticus is an attraction located in Norfolk, Virginia, just a short distance away from Virginia Beach. Found on One Waterside Drive, Nauticus is conveniently located and very fun to see in person. It is interesting to children and adults alike. This attraction is an assemblage of science and technology exhibits. Many of the center’s exhibits are interactive. Here, people can learn about the economic and naval power of the sea.
Nauticus is also home of the Battleship Wisconsin. Not only does the center collect many exhibits that relate to the original USS Wisconsin, but it also has the BB-64 live and in living color. This was the original ship used in the Pacific Theater of World War II, the Korean War, Navy reserve fleets and Operation Desert Storm. She “retired” in 1991 and earned six battle stars. On April 16, 2010, a formal ceremony took place, showing that the Battleship Wisconsin was now the legal property of the City of Norfolk. Now visitors can enjoy hands-on exhibits of the ship, HD films, sharks and presentations.
A Day at Nauticus is a step into the history of Naval forces and the landmark events they endured!

What preparations do you make for the ship? Are the guns lowered or anything? Anchors dropped maybe?
Be safe folks
Man, prayers the Whisky rides it out!
The ship will ride it out better than the buildings. I mean, the USS Texas has been through a lot in the last ten years and always comes out of it.
SO GLAD THAT last Wednesday through Sunday was our trip - boy we would have been so upset our trip got messed up due to a storm stay safe.
Madison Wisconsin..... Praying for you #Wisconsin strong!

Nauticus shared Schooner Virginia's post.
Tuesday September 11th, 2018
The Schooner Virginia is looking for help to secure everything onboard and move her out into the middle of the basin. Please stop by the Nauticus Pier if you can. No experience needed!Hurricane Florence is on the way, and we are starting preps on the Schooner to make her as safe as possible.
We can use any help we can get to stow and secure everything onboard. Once everything is stowed, we will move the Schooner into the middle of the basin, which will probably happen Tuesday afternoon.
If you can make it down to help us out, just show up. No need to sign up. We'll be here at Nauticus from at least 9-5 the next few days. ... See MoreSee Less
