Region: Norfolk

Description

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!
