If your ever on the North Shore in Pittsburgh, Pa take the tour of the USS Requin it's the submarine that is docked right behind the Children's Museum. The view from the inside will tell the story of how our sailors had to live and function while protecting our country.

This was one of our favorite visits during our trip. There was someone inside with amazing facts about the vessel. My kids just loved the fact that you were able to interact with it all. It will be a wonderful memory to visit this submarine!

I liked ; - the fact it was open, - easy to find near the Science Centre, - not crowded, - able to take pics inside - had a guy in there interesting to talk with - that a piece of history is present that shows the young ones what it was like on a submarine during the war (or... More

I have always been a fan of submarines. Only 3rd one I have been on. The USS Requin is moored out behind the Carnegie Science Center. I climbed down to take a look around. The good thing about tourist stuff during the week is that there are no crowds. It was just me and the guide, who was a retired... More

i tried to visit the submarine as part of the visit to the Carnegie Science Center. Just couldn't. The place was narrow, dark and crowded with visitors. The smell of paint was unbearable. People have to follow the line. So if you start you won't be able to stop. I stopped at the very beginning. So if you are sensitive,... More

When visiting a new area I always try to take in as much of the local scene as possible- the spots that the locals forget are there. We were just walking along the river front and stumbled upon this submarine from 1943. It is part of the Carnegie Science center but allows a separate entry/tour fee of only $5 per... More

As the culmination of our walk along the river from PNC Park we visited the Requin. In addition to getting the feel of what being inside such a confining space must be like the chat with the ex-submariner who was at the end of the boat was really enlightening. If you do the tour note the medals on his chest... More

It was really cool to see the inside of an actual submarine! The submarine was included in our Science Museum admission. I'm not sure I would have paid to see it by itself, but it was interesting to see how the men lived in such small places for such a long period of time. The portholes were neat, however, if... More
