Perhaps I misunderstood the info on line but supposedly the size of the tour groups was limited to 11 so I jumped on the bandwagon to purchase tickets on line through etix. These tickets are non-refundable pre-paid tickets at $14.39 ea. ($57.56 for 4 adults for a 20 min. tour because you can't get Sr. discounts through etix but you... More

At the beginning of the "tour", the guide explained that this is a research facility, not a museum. Being a research facility, the area to view the sub is not set up for visitors. There is a folding glass wall between the viewing area and the sub. The sub is in a tank that has green sides so the water... More

This is where the Hunley is kept. The staff are all volunteers and very knowledgeable about the Hunley and the Civil War.

This was by far our favorite experience. Seeing they Hunley was so fascinating, yet a somber experience. We loved our tour guide and what was on display, aside from the Hunley. Very educational and a Civil War buff must-see!

I've been to see the Hunley twice. It is an informative and up close look at the H.L. Hunley. I could not believe how small it was and what it had been through.

The HL Hunley is submerged at this point in a restorative bath. You can still see much of her outer-works and inner-works. Despite some negative reviews, it is well worth the $12 to see. Much of the artifacts on display are reproductions until such time as a legitimate museum (in the works) is created to house the fully restored sub... More

We moved our visit to Charleston around in order to see this wonderful, historic treasure on a weekend. It was well-worth doing so. Our tour guide, Scott, was very informative and it was incredible to see what I've been reading about and following on TV over the years. The artifacts are wonderful and it's awe-inspiring the amount of research and... More
