This sub tour gives you a vivid idea of what being on a submarine was really like. The menus, how space was creatively conserved, what life is like on such a ship. To tour, you have to climb down the manhole just as those who lived on it did. Definitely worth the trip if you are nearby. Kids found it... More

Excellent WW2 submarine museum. Hard to get into and out of as you have to climb in and out, but once in a great view of life aboard a submarine.

This sub is the real thing, no hull cutouts like other subs to make it easy in and out. you want to get in, you do it just like the guys in 1944: down a tight hatch through the pressure hull on a narrow ladder. Makes you appreciate the Greatest Generation even more, especially since no one is trying to... More

While in Cleveland recently for some training at the world famous Cleveland Clinic I had some free time so I took the Med Line bus to downtown, got off at East 9th Street and walked (20-25 minutes) to the water front and toured the World War Two submarine USS Cod. The thing that makes the Cod different from other WW2... More

My wife, son and I and I "toured" the USS Cod on a recent trip to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. It was very interesting and informative. However, there should be some notice at the entrance that the sub is not suitable for some people, i.e., people with back problems (my wife) or similar issues. Some young children... More

The weather was perfect and so was my tour of the USS Cod. My guide was interesting, knowledgeable, and knew what I was going to ask about before I did. The submarine was amazing from front to back and there were many young people and children in my tour group, The grounds were beautiful and the staff members I met... More

We took a quick stop at the USS Cod and were so happy we did. We had a tour guide that gave us the ins and outs of living on a submarine. Great tour!

Very cool to walk through a sub that has had very little altered to it. You have to climb in and out of the hatches. Most of the vets are awesome and accommodating to answer questions. A great piece of history.

We went to Cleveland for other reasons but read about this WWII submarine. It is about a block away from the Rock n Roll HOF and easily overlooked. This is a self guided tour with a nominal cost. You can move through the sub at your own pace. There are several spots where you can stop and listen to audio... More
