Nauticus
Nauticus combines the Chesapeake Bay's remarkable naval heritage with exciting interactive exhibits exploring the power of the sea. It features hands-on exhibits including computer and video interactives, films on a giant screen, exotic aquaria, shark touching, and national-caliber traveling exhibits.

Adjacent to Nauticus is the Battleship Wisconsin, one of the largest and last battleships ever built. Explore its deck through a self-guided or audio tour that takes visitors back in time to experience this majestic ship. Within Nauticus, travel through two centuries of naval history at the Hampton Roads Naval Museum, as seen through the eyes of the sailor in and around the great harbor of Hampton Roads. Nauticus is also home to The Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center, a NOAA environmental resource center, and the Victory Rover, which offers cruises of the Seaport.
