Its very interesting for all age groups.Its a real retired submarine which is reshaped inside to turn into museum. Its very well ventilated and airconditioned from inside. Ex navymen explain things inside. Must read hoardings outside to understand in detail

What a fantastic sight! Awesome. Visited during the day and it was not open for public, but my first live sight of a submarine. Has served the nation well, difficult to survive under water in trying times but loved it!

Great experience! Felt little claustrophobic inside though but overall experience was great. The guide explained history very well. I shudder how the captains used to sleep Inn those very tiny private cabins months after months! Torpedo launchers looked great!
