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.

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

Extremely well preserved WWII submarine, great on your own tour of the boat with good audio as you go. The boat is super clean and well maintained above and below decks and this is a must stop for anyone interested in maritime items. Very nice place to visit and convenient to downtown and the other tourists stops

The guy at the entrance where you buy your tickets could be little more friendly. Wife and I had a great time walking around and seeing this sub. They have audio buttons you press in different areas, to tell you a little bit about what you are looking at and life on the sub. This gave us an appreciation of... More
