“Love Pearl Harbor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

You have to come to Pearl Harbor. Every trip I make to Hawaii, I stop in. If you are a history buff, this is the place for you. Kids will love it too.

“Excellent exhibition”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Definitely do the whole Pearl Harbour experience on your own, meaning not as part of a tour group as you need nearly a full day to appreciate it. The history of all the submarines is fascinating and worth the trip.

“IF YOU DONT LIKE CONFINED SPACES DONT GO ON BOARD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Interesting tour which you can do at your own pace. But it is submarine so it is not for everyone. You get headphones which assist greatly and assist the experience.

“Excellent audio tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

Never been on a sub, so this was a fantastic intro to sub life! How they cramped so many people on this tin can, I'll never know. Very interesting info about how subs are powered and up close look at all the gadgets!!! Worth the $10 entry fee!

“Amazing Submarine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This was another bucket list item that I didn't get to visit when I was on my initial tour bus visit of Pearl a few years ago. I had the pleasure to be on Oahu again and I made the effort to come back to Pearl and visit the Bowfin and the Missouri. Both were worth the visit and I can't express how wonderfully restored this submarine is. It is so worth the visit and the experience to be inside the submarine is amazing. Please visit this while at Pearl Harbor
