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.

It's hard to believe men lived in such cramped quarters. If you visit, be sure to duck or you'll hit your head. Was an educational visit.

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

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.
