Video Description - Published on Feb/21/2009
Norfolk is an independent city in the Commonwealth of Virginia. It is Virginias 2nd-largest incorporated city.

Norfolk is located in the Hampton Roads region, named for the large natural harbor of the same name located at the mouth of Chesapeake Bay.

The city has a long history as a strategic military and transportation point. Norfolk Naval Base is the worlds largest such base.

Norfolk has many miles of riverfront and bayfront property. It is linked to its neighbors by an extensive network of Interstate highways, bridges, tunnels, and bridge-tunnel complexes.

Major private shipyards located in Norfolk or the Hampton Roads area include: Northrop Grumman Shipbuilding in Newport News, BAE Systems Norfolk Ship Repair, Metro Machine Corporation, and Colonnas Shipyard Inc., while the US Navys Norfolk Naval Shipyard is just across the Downtown Tunnel in Portsmouth.

Nauticus has a maritime-themed science center for kids with an aquarium, hands-on exhibits, interactive theaters, and a variety of educational programs.

The USS Wisconsin is open for tours. 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 Wisconsins 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.

The main deck and sections of two upper decks are open for you to explore on a self-guided tour. History of the Battleship Wisconsin is displayed inside Nauticus.

Hampton Roads Naval Museum at Nauticus and the Battleship Wisconsin

The Naval Museum presents 225 years of naval history in the Hampton Roads region. The museum is also responsible for the historic interpretation and day-to-day operations of the Battleship Wisconsin.

The Museum and the entrance to the Battleship Wisconsin are located on the 2nd floor of Nauticus: The National Maritime Center in downtown Norfolk (at One Waterside Drive).

Admission to the museum is free. There is no on-site parking, but there are several city operated parking garages within walking distance.

Norfolk, Virginia, is the proud home of the largest naval base in the world. No matter what your reason is for visiting Norfolk, you shouldnt miss the opportunity to tour Naval Station Norfolk

Naval Station Norfolks mission is to support and improve the personnel and logistics readiness of the U.S. Atlantic Fleet.

The Norfolk naval base provides seaport, airport, and squadron facilities, quality of life, and personnel management services.

The 45-minute tour departs from the Naval Tour and Information Center located at 9079 Hampton Blvd. Bus tours conducted by Navy personnel ride past aircraft carriers, destroyers, submarines, frigates, and amphibious assault ships.

The tour also drives by historic homes from the 1907 Jamestown Exposition. Sorry, but you will not be able to get on a ship.

Naval Station Norfolk, the worlds largest Naval Station, occupies about 4,300 acres of Hampton Roads real estate on a peninsula known as Sewells Point. Port facilities extend more than four miles along the waterfront and include some seven miles of pier and wharf space.

The land on which Naval Station is located was originally the site of the 1907 Jamestown Exposition, a mammoth 300th anniversary celebration of the establishment of the first permanent English settlement in America in 1607. 21 states constructed buildings that celebrated their history and industry. Pennsylvania House, a 2/3rds replica of Independence Hall, is one of several state houses that are still standing at the Naval Station.
