USS Wisconsin in Norfolk

The USS Wisconsin is open for tours in Norfolk, Virginia. The Battleship Wisconsin BB-64 was one of the famous Iowa-class ships. It was commissioned on April 16, 1944 and reported for duty in the Pacific.

The USS Wisconsin helped neutralize Japanese sea, air and ground forces occupying the Philippine Islands. It also supported landings on Iwo Jima and Okinawa. The Battleship Wisconsin's World War II service ended transporting troops back to the US. The Battleship later saw action in the Korean War and during Operation Desert Storm.

Now docked next to Nauticus Museum in Norfolk, the battleship is open to the public. The history of the Battleship Wisconsin is displayed inside Nauticus.
