Here is a genuine submarine that you can tour in our own backyard! Whether you are a parent of children, a history buff or a Veteran you have to go and check out the museum and submarine!

We took our kids here when they were young and they loved it especially the USS Link, a submarine from World War II. Great history lesson for everyone. The tour was cool and we saw how the sailors lived in tight close quarters. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable. Time to take the grandkids now.

The museum is small, but the main artifact the USS Ling is incredible. I can't believe I have lived in NJ my whole life and never been there until now. Like maritime topics? Like military history? Like WWII? You gotta go!
