Fodor's Review

A popular attraction on Norfolk's redeveloped downtown waterfront, Nauticus is a maritime science museum featuring hands-on exhibits, interactive theaters, and high-definition films that celebrate the local connection to the seaport. Visitors can touch a shark, learn about weather and underwater archaeology, and explore the mysteries of the Elizabeth River. A NOAA Environmental Resource Center is an invaluable stop for educational materials. Temporary exhibits in both the Changing Gallery and Forecastle Gallery keep things fresh. The Hampton Roads Naval Museum on the second floor and the battleship Wisconsin adjacent to the building are also popular attractions operated by the U.S. Navy, and are included in the Nauticus admission.
