There had been such talk in 1997 but that probably isn't going to happen. Someone else has mentioned desiring to do it privately, but again I wouldn't hold my breath.

However, the Monitor Center at the Mariners' Museum will be reconstructing life-size portions of the Monitor and Virginia in their new facility. Work is underway on this.

It isn't the same as a floating full-size replica, but it will be great. (There are all kinds of problems with building a full-size replica. Imagine the safety issues. How do you keep it from getting swamped? etc.)
