Visitors can learn what it was like to live and work aboard the ship with interactive exhibits inside Nauticus including high-tech scopes that bring the Wisconsin to life as viewers point them at the ship.

Starting on Friday, June 10, the museum staff will conduct HRNM's "Boot Camp" program.  Jump into 235 years of Naval history as you participate in a variety of family-friendly activities.  "Boot Camp" will be on June 10, July 8 and August 12 in the museum gallery from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
