January Homeschool Days

Nauticus/Battleship Wisconsin

Downtown Norfolk, VA - Waterfront

Tuesday, January 18; 10am-5pm

Homeschoolers receive discounted admission, special programming, goodie bags, a gift shop discount and more at this awesome attraction.

When my husband was working in Virginia, we regularly visited the Hampton Roads Naval Museum (in the same building as Nauticus) and the Battleship Wisconsin. At that time the ship was not yet retired, so tours below the top deck were not available. My children would LOVE to go back and join in on this tour!

Two children admitted free with every paid adult. $10.95 per adult.  3 and under are complimentary.  Topside tours and main deck tours can be purchased for an additional fee upon arrival, first come, first serve.

Please email for more information or e-mail the following information to by January 13th to register: name, address, # adults attending, # of children attending, and your email address.

You can find out more about the exhibits at Nauticus and the tours on the Battleship Wisconsin here.

Don’t miss out! Make sure you register by the deadline of January 13th.
