NORFOLK -- It's not exactly luxurious, but it's most certainly authentic. For the first time, visitors will be able to spend the night on the U-S-S Wisconsin, and that's not all.

The director of Nauticus National Maritime Center made the announcement that the retired battleship's berthing compartments will now be available for members of the public to stay in, for a cost.

The idea is to give people an experience they'll never forget--what it's like to stay on a WWII era U-S Navy warship.

Additionally, the battleship will now also be open for people to book their weddings on board.
