My family and I visited the sub during our vacation. It was really neat inside and even the kids wanted to go thru it again. I will say if you have a hard time going up and down stairs, you might not want to try it. I found it educational and interesting. I don't think I could have ever been... More

If you have any interest in WWII or mechanical stuff this is a tour for you. You can defiantly get a real feel for what it was like to be on a WWII sub. Now you can walk through on your own but if you get the right guide it's much better. You can access most areas on the main... More

These folks have done a wonderful job of restoring this ship. Very educational. The tour can be taken at your own pace. The guys that were staffing the attraction were very hospitable and seemed to know a great deal about the ship. We thoroughly enjoyed it

This is a great way to see what it was like on a submarine during the war. You enter and leave the submarine using the same ladders and hatches that were used by the submarine's crew. It has a deck gun that you can rotate to get the total experience. Overall a great memorial! We went to the submarine after... More

I don't normally write reviews about attractions that I visit but I feel that I need to make an exception for this one. I had sussed out this attraction before visiting Cleveland and decided that I would like to check it out. Upon arriving at the submarine my first thought was that this tour likely isn't for everyone. The submarine... More

It was really because my husband wanted to go that I dragged along, however, I too, was very impressed. Very knowledgeable guy at door. He had been a submariner. Was able to touch things and it was very interactive. Spent much more time there than I expected. It is a self-guided tour, so spend as much or as little time... More

Visiting the USS Cod gives you firsthand experience of what it was like to be at sea on a Submarine. I was not able to go down in the submarine but learned all about it from the guide

The sub is an interesting throwback into history, if you like that kind of thing. They have buttons throughout that give you narratives, which is a nice touch. It is much better done that other sub tours. The downside is that this is a older, smaller sub. So you have some minor issues if you are larger or taller. I... More
