Close to Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We visited this first before going to the museum. It is an interesting piece of history.

Great fun for our teens,education and informative. We certainly saw more on this sub than other military boats we've toured.

Very interesting and informative. Don't do this if your afraid of tight places. The audio narrative gives you an idea of what life was like on the sub during the war.

This was really fun for my family. The two older kids (8&10) really enjoyed climbing down into the submarine and seeing all the different parts of it. The audio tour was really fun and they talked just like they were crew members of the submarine during World War II. We had our three year old with us but we weren't... More

We took our kids aged 14 & 17 and they loved it as much as we did. We were there for almost two hours poking around and asking questions. It was a great way for all of us to really get a better understanding of how life aboard a submarine would be.

If you are looking for something fun and educational to do - this is it. I was a little skeptical about going inside the sub but I am so glad we did. Is it small? Yes is it cramped? Yes does it smell like diesel? Yes. But it is so worth seeing what our veterans went thru when they were... More

Playing with the 'Big Guns', pretending to shoot my friends was so fun topside! Going down the very narrow ladder 'backward' was heart-pounding until I reached 'below'. The close-quarters of the submarine made the tour feel very personal, and I had chances to ask questions about all the surrounding valves, switches, fire equipment, and the red and green lights that...

This was a neat experience and I plan to take our son soon. You get to tour the inside of an actual world war 2 submarine. Vets are nearby to answer questions.

My son loves submarines. This submarine is an actual WWII original. We found it on a cloudy blustery day with the waves crashing over the embankments near the US Coast Guard station. I liked the fact that you could park almost on top of the site. This is a self guided tour and there is a lot to see in... More
