The monument (or museum) is built using an actual Whiskey-class submarine, KRI Pasopati. You can get inside the sub, which will make you appreciate how large it is on the outside, and yet how cramped and claustrophobic it is on the inside. You will really...More

Visit to this submarine museum is recommended especially for family with kids. It’s because, the kids could have hands on experience to feel what it likes to be in a submarine ie the tiny space. Really interesting. Area to cover is pretty small, so the...More

The entrance fee was IDR15,000 per pax. I came at 730am and it was already open to public. So good! There was a documentary at 9am but since I didn’t want to stay long, I passed. The submarine had lots of Russian’s alphabet, so I...More

Kind of old school. Not many to see, not that clean. It's located next to plaza Surabaya. It's quite hard to have fresh air inside the submarine.

A good place for a short visit. Located in the city within a walking distance, you can add this place to your city site attraction.
