Great experience. After initially climbing into this submarine, it was a very informative journey. Information stations give useful facts and the guys who have rebuilt this make sure you can imagine what it was like. I sure would have preferred the captains quarters, this was luxury! Hubby thoroughly enjoyed playing on the gun that youncan simulate and turn - what... More

Days number six and seven of our Circle Lake Erie trip were spent discovering Cleveland. After lunch on our first day, we stopped and toured the USS Cod, a submarine responsible for sinking over 30,000 tons of enemy water craft during WWII. I quite enjoyed being able to go through this old boat, getting a glimpse of and hearing about... More

Extremely well preserved WWII submarine, great on your own tour of the boat with good audio as you go. The boat is super clean and well maintained above and below decks and this is a must stop for anyone interested in maritime items. Very nice place to visit and convenient to downtown and the other tourists stops

The guy at the entrance where you buy your tickets could be little more friendly. Wife and I had a great time walking around and seeing this sub. They have audio buttons you press in different areas, to tell you a little bit about what you are looking at and life on the sub. This gave us an appreciation of... More

I recently visited the USS Cod whilst in Cleveland and was very impressed with the whole experience. The volunteers do a fantastic job in keeping her in tip top condition,her conning tower was being repainted on the day and below decks was spotless. At each station there were pictures and audio to give an impression of what would be happening... More

This is a small yet important WWII naval history/military attraction. There is a brochure and audio lessons throughout the tour which is self-guided. The brochure has important info that the audio lessons do not. The price is reasonable, parking free, and as mentioned, entirely self-directed. You will get as much or as little as you are willing to work for... More

The USS Cod submarine museum is top notch and also a true historic national treasure. For all history fans and anyone who appreciates military hardware, the USS Cod tour is a must! The USS Cod is located near the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and admission includes parking. This was my first (and only) tour of a US Navy... More

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