Museum Giving Haunted Tours of USS Wisconsin

The Nauticus museum in downtown Norfolk is giving visitors haunted tours of sections of the USS Wisconsin.

Media outlets report the tours will be held Thursday night through Saturday, starting at 6 p.m.

Nauticus assistant executive director Stephen Kirkland says the
tours give visitors a Halloween spin on the ship's history.

Tickets are limited and cost $15 for the general public and $10 for Nauticus members, but the tour isn't suitable for children under 12.

The museum says visitors must be able to climb steep ladder steps and navigate through tight passageways.

The Navy transferred ownership of the retired World War-II era battleship to the city of Norfolk in 2010.
