We visited USS Batfish last October and got to stay overnight as a group. It was a very unique experience! By sleeping there, we get to experience and imagine how those brave soldiers worked and lived. It's some kind of work out climbing up and...More

Here's a chance to 'go back in time' to the perilous times of World War 2 and experience the hazards, cramped quarters and comradery of those that served ''under the waves' to keep our country free!

Really enjoyed the 'Batfish' and War Memorial Park in Muskogee. It should be on your travel agenda. It's not very well advertised, but really well done. Help get the word out.

I’ve always had going on a submarine in my bucket list but never dreamed of doing that in Oklahoma. The Batfish was amazing! You were free to touch almost everything (including the fire torpedo button) and the historical vehicles, torpedos, and other military artillery were...More

We lucked out and visited on a “cruise” weekend where an all volunteer “crew” (complete in 1940’s Navy uniforms) gave us a tour of the ship! Extremely fascinating, well-presented, and worth the $18 cost for 2 adults/2 kids with AAA. Amazing artifacts both inside and...More

Hello! Unfortunately as others have said, the USS Batfish is not an easy vessel to make your way through. There are two sets of stairs that you must go up and down in order to exit and enter the submarine. Additionally... More
