We had a memorable time visiting the NJ Naval Museum. We were privileged to be taken on a tour of the sub by Joseph Mongelli - a 95 year old WW2 Submariner. He knew every inch of the submarine (he had served on a similar ship) and gave us a fascinating insight to what life was like on board. He... More

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! Hurricane Sandy did extensive damage to the museum part...but the submarine braved the hurricane! Go figure! Once inside, you are transformed into the... More

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.

I went over 30 yearrs ago. Great American history, and young kids need to learn some home history, and the USS Ling has it.

I recently took my scouts there for a tour. When I called the man said that they would get a tour of the Ling, have pizza, and play games. The tour was great & the boys loved it! When the pizza arrived, the man asked me to pay for it. I thought it was included in the $15.00/person, it was... More

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!
