I make a point to visit this museum yearly. It's a fascinating tour. The "boat" has a unique history and is well represented.

Went first thing in the morning and we had the entire sub to ourselves for over an hour. The veterans on site are happy to answer questions and you could tell that they really enjoyed sharing their stories with you.

We weren't prepared for such a comprehensive exhibit on submariner living, warfare, history, spanning many decades! The USS Cod Exhibit is a portal through which you enter into a time and culture that defy today's Hollywood/TV wartime presentations and self-indulgent lifestyles. It's incredible to watch...More
