Like most visitors I had to visit here as it is one of Vladivostok's main attractions. As many others have said it has a small museum in the first half of the sub with everything in Russian! and the other half is as it was when is sailed the seven seas. At 100 rubles its worth a look.

This is the attraction that is nice to admire from the outside, but it's quite a waste of time to go inside. No tours available, tickets cheap but still perhaps too much for what it is. Too much information, too confusing, did not learn anything new. Perhaps if one goes with a guide it would be fascinating, or unless you... More

I enjoyed walking around the city and happened upon the museum. It was very interesting especially since I grew up during the Cold War and had always been curious about Russia.

This attraction like most in Vladivostok is a short walk from the port, where our ship was docked. Its well presented high and dry on a paved area, close to the large war memorial. You can go inside the submarine for a small charge, but be prepared to negotiate some confined spaces. The entire sub can be viewed on the... More

a very different experience when I enter the submarine museum. Even though is a museum, however, this is real submarine. I can see how actually inside look like which I normally can't see in normal life. I get to experience how people walk inside, you just have to use the hole to climb over from part to part. It was...

Rare opportunity to get close and personal with a submarine. You can view the inside of this sub and see the control room and forward sections. Just a quick tour but it's interesting.

This is a true submarine that was once fully operational. Visitors get to experience what life and work inside a submarine was like for days and even months. Historic part of he exhibition gives a glimpse of events that took place there, and makes you imagine what the world would be like if any of the war machines were used... More

It is not expensive (100Rub +50Rub if you want take pictures). Even if i expected a "whole" submarine, the first half was designed as small museum (only russian) that might be interesting of naval fans, and in the end there were a few "original" chambers illustrating the small place. I liked it and its no waste for 100Rub. "Amazing" was... More
