NORFOLK, Va. - Nauticus has a delicious plan for families to beat the heat this summer.

Each Wednesday in August, the Big Wisky Porch restaurant, Nauticus’ new outdoor restaurant, is offering a free scoop of hand-dipped ice cream to every child that visits Nauticus. The restaurant serves a variety of flavors of Hershey’s ice cream.

“Our goal is to create a true Americana experience this summer,” said Nauticus executive director, Stephen E. Kirkland. “Touring the nation’s last battleship and then cooling off with a scoop of ice cream on our outdoor front porch just seemed perfect.”

One scoop of ice cream per child (ages 15 and younger) will be served with proof of admission each Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., in August.

Nauticus operating hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Saturday, and noon to 5 p.m. on Sundays.

Admission to Nauticus Battleship Experience starts at $9 per child and $11 per adult. New small group add-on adventures including a Sail Away Boat Excursion, Behind the Scenes Aquarium Tour and more start at $10 per person.
