One of the few remaining WWII mud boats, and it still runs!

If your a Navy man like myself, you'll enjoy going on a tour through this WWII working sub. It's hard to believe that men went down in these incredibly tight spaces.

Decided to visit the USS Cod Memorial while visiting a few other attractions in the area. I'm from a military family that includes Navy veterans, so I thought this would be interesting to visit with my 18 year old son. They do give discounts to students, but apparently my son who is entering college in the fall doesn't count. So... More

I've visited a couple of submarines and this was by far the best. The audio overview provided in some rooms allows you to better understand how those areas were used.

This is a well preserved submarine full of naval history. The guides around the ship are very helpful and full of knowledge about not only the Cod's history, but the history of naval warfare. It is a nice way to spend a relaxing couple of hours.

45 years ago the USS Cod was the first submarine I'd ever seen. As a Seaman Recruit at the Naval Reserve Center (then one block away) I marveled at how submariners lived, and was impressed by how much they crammed into that 312 foot hull. 45 years and a full Navy career later I'm still amazed at how efficient the...

The family and I were expecting a 10 minutes walk inside a submarine; we're we ever wrong. The good ol' Veterans greeted us with the warmest welcome. They took the time to explain everything about their sub. Duration of the visit in the end: about 1h30 min :)

My family and I visited the Cod a couple weeks ago, and we really enjoyed ourselves. It is truly amazing to experience an important piece of our nation's history in such an up-close, personal way. When you take the tour you can take a peak through the periscope and hear the call to dive or man battle stations! The guides... More

I went here with a friend of mine during my ongoing historic field-trip of a vacation. I have to say first and foremost, this is an EXCELLENTLY maintained historic boat. I've been on many museum ships and this thing looked and smelled as if it could seal the hatches and dive into the lake (I understand the engines are actually... More

Awesome! Discount for veterans a plus. VERY tight to get into and around this sub. If you have any weight issues or mobility challenges, don't attempt it (seriously). This is a fantastic display of an actual submarine - we were just awed by the completeness of the memorial and HIGHLY recommend it with the limits noted above.

We arrived at 4:30 and the guide said we could still come in that he was staying late. He gave us a personal tour for an hour and 45 minutes. We climbed down in the sub using the original ladders. He let my daughter try out a bunk bed. We sat in the "dining hall" on the ship. We LOVED... More
