Come learn all about the sea, weather, shipping, and the Navy at this world class museum!
Come join your fellow scouts as we explore the Nauticus Museum and spend the night on the Battleship Wisconsin where we can sleep in the original berthing of the sailors, see how they lived and fought for our country!

Scouts and Adult are encouraged to arrive and tour the museum on Saturday between 10AM-4:30PM. The earlier you arrive the more time you can spend exploring on Saturday. Want more exploring? You can finish touring the museum Sunday between 12-5PM.
First priority will be given to scouts and their akelas. Additional siblings or family members can be added to the waiting list by emailing Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org. Families with members on the waiting list will be notified no later than Saturday October 1st if there are additional spaces available and will then make arrangements to complete payment.

The group rate for the self guided tour is as follows - Adults $15.30 per person and children $6.50. We would have to have a minimum of 15 people interested in doing this on Sunday.
