This is an old Russian submarine. It is interesting to see and climb through. You get a feel for what it must have been like living among the torpedo's. It must have been a horrible existence with no fresh air.. There are some good really old photographs and the guy selling the memorabilia is interesting and has interesting stuff. Take... More

Not everyday you can hop into an old soviet submarine! Really cheap to get in 100руб and has two sections-part musuem and part the original/as close to it/ fit out of the submarine which is awesome

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. There... More

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.
