You don't get a chance to visit a real active (in her past life) WWII hunter killer sub. Manned by volunteers and ex sub Mariners completes your experience. As original in condition as she could be without live ordnance :-)! Great fun seeing how the crew lived in a a small crammed sub that became home to a bunch of... More

Ok, I am a guy and guys like this sort of thing. The USS Cod is worth visiting on a regular basis, just to savor the experience and think back to the men that served on this vessel near 70 years ago. The quarters are small, where the men lived, fought and survived. To look at her and think, this,... More

while at a submarine reunion in Cleveland, our group visited the USS COD, everyone had a good time and we would recommend to others

This was my first visit to a WWII submarine and it was awesome! The submarine is well preserved and is in excellent condition. I went on a Saturday in July when the USS Cod was celebrating an anniversary when US sailors rescued foreign sailors stranded at sea so admission was free, otherwise I believe admission is $10 per person. The... More

I have attended the last two annual Halloween programs and they were great. This year's program on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 17 & 18, 7 to 9:30 p.m., tells spooky but true tales from Cod's amazing history with the added bang of deck gun firing demonstrations every 30 min. That should blast any lake witches or sea monsters out of... More

It was great to climb down into the sub just like the men who served on the Cod. All the docents clearly love the sub and sharing the history with visitors. The Cod is a great way to experience what life was like on a submarine. It was very interesting to see where they slept and ate and lived in... More

Interesting, but for less agile people hard to manoeuvre how did those sub mariners do it. Items on board could be explained better and better lighting as well

From the time you climb down the hatch into the Cod you can imagine yourself among the crew. Loading torpedos, hitting your head on a pipe fitting just two inches above you head while you lie in your bunk. Smelling the bread baking in the galley. The audio tour is informative, but just poking around is great fun. This was... More

Great experience. After initially climbing into this submarine, it was a very informative journey. Information stations give useful facts and the guys who have rebuilt this make sure you can imagine what it was like. I sure would have preferred the captains quarters, this was luxury! Hubby thoroughly enjoyed playing on the gun that youncan simulate and turn - what... More

Days number six and seven of our Circle Lake Erie trip were spent discovering Cleveland. After lunch on our first day, we stopped and toured the USS Cod, a submarine responsible for sinking over 30,000 tons of enemy water craft during WWII. I quite enjoyed being able to go through this old boat, getting a glimpse of and hearing about... More
