We were really lucky on our visit as we met the curator whose enthusiasm and knowledge enhanced what was already a superb attraction. The level of period detail, photos, and information around gives you some idea of life on a WW2 submarine, which at times...More

Not for everyone, tight spaces, if you enjoy military circa 1945 worth a look. It does establish the fact that early submariners were a very tough breed...one interesting fact, due to a treaty with Canada, the USS Cod has no propeller.

You can walk through yourself, but make sure you take every opportunity to hear the stories from the volunteers on board. The most interesting was how they put this historic sub back together like it was originally. Fascinating!

This was a great tour. It is self-guided with audio buttons to tell you what to see in each section of the submarine. Plus there were two vets working who brought so much more information and cool things to see. They were relaxed and available...More
