A must do in Cleveland! Admission to the ship is $10 for adults and $6 for children. The only way in or out is through the small openings. It's a tight squeeze and not recommended for people with mobility issues. I also advise leaving any bags and purses in the car. It is a self guided tour from one end... More

I always wanted to go inside a submarine and this tour was it. They weren't very big in the 1940's and if you are claustrophobic, this isn't a trip for you but it is really cool to be on a warship that isn't a Disney ride, but a real warship.

This is another stop in Cleveland that I have visited several times. I had never been on a submarine before and this was a unique experience. It is so enlightening to see how sailors live on a submarine. I can only imagine what it must be like to spend so much time in such tight quarters. Some of the access... More

The tour was very well done and it was very interesting. The tour guide was extremely knowledgable about the boat. I highly recommend, however, if you are unable to climb down the hatch to enter (ie overweight, afraid of heights or disabled) then skip this one because it is very tight quarters indeed!

The self guided tour is worth the visit. Across the street from Rock n roll and 2 blocks from Science Center and a few blocks from downtown area. The opportunity to walk along the narrow rooms and imagine a submersion is amazing You need to be able to traverse straight down/up ladders to go down into the submarine. The volunteers... More

Short walk from Rock and Roll hall of fame, the tickets are inexpensive compared to the experience we had. The attractions allows you to experience the submarine from inside. There are audio areas for a self guided tour. The history it carries and the stories told, salute to the dedication of those who fight for our safety. Got to witness... More

My guy, myself, his Mom and sister toured the submarine 8/22/2013. You must be in good physical shape to climb down the ladder and my guy is 6ft tall and 220lb and he barely fit inside the submarine. I recommend that you wear clothing that can't be stepped on. It might be fun for kids or teens.

I have eleven grandsons and only two granddaughters. When any of them are in town a visit to the USS Cod is warranted. Do not try to take the tour with a baby in hand. Difficult entry and exit! There are picnic tables to sit at and parking is free.

Very cramped and a little difficult to stumble through - hard to imagine living on a submarine for any extended period of time. Walk the deck and see the deck guns as well. Definitely worth the visit.
