good historical place to visit

I enjoyed the history. There were not very many services in the park. There was lots of construction so I hope it will improve in the future.

A really cool place to tour! There is not very much access to the ship, but lots of access to the submarine. Warning! Climbing through the submarine is challenging for some older or overweight people, myself included! The grandkids LOVE it! Watch out or you will bump your head on the steel surfaces!

We took 4 kids ages 9-12 to Seawolf Park. We enjoyed getting to tour on our own. Would have liked to have had a packet with the stop numbers on it.

I really enjoyed walking around the submarine and the ship. It was the first time I had been on a sub. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes. There is a lot of climbing up and down stairs. I started out in a sundress and quickly changed to shorts and a top. I'm glad I had them in the car. Not somewhere... More

Visited on a hot August day. The ship was cool to tour but oh so hot. The sub, however, was air conditioned (YEA!!) and amazing to walk through. The only disappointment was that the Seawolf War monument building on the edge of the island was essentially destroyed by Hurricane IKE and there doesn't appear to be any progress being made...

Well worth the visit. Nothing overly complicated but it was facinating for my son to be able to touch and feel the military technology of this era.

I really wanted to take my boys to see the ships at Seawolf Park and was impressed that it only cost $6 to get into the park, but from the information I had found online regarding this park was misleading. As soon as we arrived at the park we paid the $6 and then were told that we had to... More

It costs 10 dollars to enter. Not much here really. Just an old ww2 sub and ship to tour. They do have a fishing pier but we didn't fish.

We enjoyed walking the steps of those brave men during WW II. Amazing the space that sailors had to live in. It is a shame that Mother Nature is taking her toll on these vessels

Small park but the sub was very cool it's just amazing to me that men went down to depths in this little sub and they deserve our respect for their bravery.
