We went to this museum after I had read the reviews. It was very interesting and well laid out. The staff was very helpful and willing to answer any questions. The exhibit on the Thrasher was excellent.

For many years I have noticed the sign for this museum but was always on my way somewhere else and never thought to visit. My school retirees' group decided to take a field trip there. We were actually going to try to do two museums in one day, but we were so amazed at how extensive this museum was that... More

I hadn't visited this museum since shortly after it first opened, many years ago. At that time, it was mostly a collection of torpedoes. My, how it's grown! If you have the slightest interest in our activities in the undersea environment, and particularly our Naval interests in that field, this is the place to satisfy your curiosity. The exhibits cover... More

A very nice museum and the admission is free. I always recommend it to visitors from out of town. If you need information on Navy Vessels there is a Library located on the top floor. It is quite extensive. Outdoor exhibits include Deep Quest and others.

I have been to a lot of museums, this one has a great collection of undersea items. A fun place to spend a hour or two.

The displays are so informative and you learn all that you need to know about torpedoes and how they evolved over the centuries. I think that Benjamin Franklin designed one submarine. They were used in the Civil War! Kids love it. Bring them along!

Learning for the kids without them really knowing they were learning as lot of hands on things. Not being a Navy family as we are Army it was nice to learn about Navy life and the kids had a blast.

It's easy to spend a couple of hour here. The museum combines a good history of submarines and divers (starting with Gilgamesh!) with good, modern information about the ocean, plate tectonics, and climate change. As the history moves into the 20th century, one gets a good sense of the increasingly important role of subs in modern warfare.

This is a rather small museum that falls in the "must see" category. The museum has excellent exhibits on diving gear, WW II submarine warfare and has an outstanding display on life on the modern atomic subs. The kids (old and young) can peer through a subs periscope and hit the controls for interactive displays on undersea marine life. It... More
