“One of Its Kind in India.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

The decommissioned submarine of the Indian Navy INS Kurusura is on the R. K. Beach of Vizag. Yes, its one of its kind in India given the condition of INS Vikrant in Mumbai. The beach is good and with minimal entrance fee (no entry fee for military personnel n family) you can have a basic knowledge about submarines and the life of mariners! Fully air conditioned with a gud guide inside! A must visit if you are in Vizag! Best visit time is during the evenings.

“a must visit place for kids ..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

You can never get a better experience.... and the submarine visit is one of the best . A true real time experince visiting an actual submarine conveted into a museam incurring heavy cost.

The major experince is the guides .. they are the retired navel officers with a good motive to educate the people... the way they explain and clear the questions is phenomenal and the motivation they inculcate is great....

“INS Kursura Sub marine museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

Excellent initiative by the Indian Navy to show case one real life sub marine, now grounded for public view. You would have a first hand feel about the life of the mariners under water, how a sub marine functions, uses its armoury for protection of the Country

“life in a submarine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

Once inside the submarine , I had become an ardent thinker.. usually due to drudgery and daily chores we never think ... i started thinking about how those who in a submarine think , every moment ...why did man create such deadly devices to kill and maim......Visit this submarine or any submarine and become a thinker.. and strive for a peaceful world..
