“Wow”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Truly one can't appreciate what our sailors go through until one takes a stroll through a sub. I can't believe my friend 6'3" brother could actually live in a sub...unreal.

“Worth a look”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2012

Going down the hatch allows you to appreciate the service of those you were confined here. Not for the claustrophobic. The headphone set commentary was good and paced well enough that you didn't feel hurried or overwhelmed with information. Kids love this, even Teen 16 appreciated this. Set aside 20 - 60 minutes for the museum. Depends on how quickly you like moving through static displays. There is certainly some interesting memorabilia here. The hotdogs served outside will help to energise you for the rest of your tour.

“Bowfin Submarine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

It's really good, but if you're running low on time don't skip the Arizona and Missouri, skip this one. The gift shop and cafe are better here too.
