This self guided tour was one of the best I've done and I've toured a lot of retired military equipment. Truly amazing to see how life on a sub was like. Highly recommend whether you're a history buff or just looking for something different to do on your cleveland vaca.

The USS Cod is an interesting experience because of her condition. She is the most authentic WWII submarine remaining. There are a number of other WWII submarine museums available around the US but the USS Cod is in the most authentic WWII condition. She has not been made " people friendly". You enter the sub the same way her crew... More

My daughter had such a good time exploring the nearby William G Mather museum that we opted to go to the more adventurous USS Cod. It was a ball. From the initial descent into the tight hatch straight down to the torpedo room, we loved it. The condition is incredible and extremely authentic. You get the feeling it was cleaned... More

Almost just like the Cobia in Manitowoc Wisconsin, but no staircase to go down or back out of. You enter and exit through the escape trunks (straight down ladder); not a big deal but if you are disabled or over the age of 70 you might not want to try an entry. Boat is in authentic WWII condition with one... More

Loved this. I have never been to a better subamarine/ship museum. Incredibly cool to see how our sailors lived during WWII if stationed on a submarine. Awesome

Many greater Clevelanders either don't know about the Cod or have little interest in touring it. It's a true WW2 sub that saw considerable action in the Pacific. Tours are available thru the sub usually on Sundays as I recall. The tours are self-guided but there are volunteers to direct you accordingly. There is a fair amount of ladder climbing... More

It was a great find not really advertised around the area. Cost was more expensive than other small ship museums i have visited but its worth it and the staff are really informative. It is small so it does not take a long time.

If you're a warship buff like me, you need to visit. Only submarine I know of where you enter & exit through the hatches as the did when in service. Was here as a kid, returned some 40 years later. Just wish they would let you in the conning tower like they did when I was a kid.

Well worth the visit! An actual US war submarine that you can tour, touch, climb, etc. A unique experience and a chance for some great photo opportunities.
