The museum is made out of a real WW2 submarine near the war memorial and suspension bridge in Vladivostok. It is divided into two parts, a history section with photos and memorabilia relating to its military use and journeys; and a second area where the interior of the sub is untouched and you can imagine you are a submariner.

A friend brought me to see this and it was the highlight of my visit to Vladivostok. It was possible to buy souvenirs and walk through the submarine. It was definitely worth visiting.

The fee is reasonable. There was supposed to be extra charge for taking photo's but she waved it. I liked seeing how they live in there, the bunks right next to the missiles! And now I can say "Yeah, I've been inside a submarine, haven't you?".

Yes, the first part is really boring with photos, medals, uniforms and the like (and only in Russian). But when you get into the real submarine area through the hatchways... wow! The control room with the periscope, the dining-room, the bunks and even the torpedo room! For me it was the highlight of Vladivostok... even though the sub is out... More

The submarine S-56 is another classical landmark of the city and a piece of Russian history. However, the visit seems strange. Half of the submarine is a museum with not much to show, some uniforms, some medals. The rest are some bunks, one opened torpedo and the launcher area. You will go out quite fast and with the feeling of... More

The sub was totally on land near the bay; I walked through the sub and found interesting information about its years of service. Displays show how crew lived and worked while under water. Interesting relic from the Cold War Era. It is obvious that the Russian sailors did not have an easy or soft life at sea.

Brilliant and amazing experience of submarine life in WW2. Set along side the harbor and close to other attractions of this truly wonderful city.

The museum is ok to visit if you really like old Russian submarines. Entry fee: It only costs 100rub to enter and you have to pay to use camera (50rub) and video camera. Museum: It will take maybe 1hr max to visit. You walk through most of the submarine, the first part is just a museum with pictures in it... More

Whole live sub from the 2nd WW on the coast next to the WW 2 memorial, a museum ship, a church and an Imperial Arch. Can't remember the price but don't think it was expensive. Inside the submarine you can see 3 (mostly) original rooms: the control room with a non operational periscope and whole lot of switches and levers,... More
