We enjoyed our visit. There is a small museum inside the building with memorabilia from the Civil War through the Iraq war. Outside, the submarine sits on a grassy area. You can walk through the sub from bow to stern, which is very cool.

Wow! What a treasure! This museum has a well preserved submarine sitting on a grassy field. We have visited many submarines and war ships and this one is certainly one of the best. Appears to be almost fully intact! All the gadgets and gears are accessible to the public. Little boys, veterans and history buffs will go crazy!

We took our grandchildren here, and it was a very interesting assortment of weapons and a submarine from World War II. The submarine tour is very fascinating and all of the other guns from ships made it worth the trip from Jenks. Great fun and very appropriate and appealing to kids. There's nothing like being inside a real submarine.

Having been on the U boat in Chicago this sub exceeds that exhibit easily, at least for the sub itself. The museum before needs a great deal of work. They should create story boards explaining the story of the ship, the history/creation subs in WW2, the ships action, the crew, etc. Then when you get on the ship it would... More

We really enjoyed touring the USS Batfish, and learning all about the history of it. And seeing what life was like on a submarine. It was an amazing find on our exploring Oklahoma trip. The staff was nice and friendly. I would like to advise those that cant go up and down narrow stairs, then this would not be for... More

Living history in Oklahoma. Grandparents fought in the war, and I feel our kids need to know what sacrifices were made. Enjoyed visiting, was somber but also nice. They also had some actors in retro army attire, made for good atmostphere.

Very neat experience! We toured the submarine and visited the gift shop. It's great that you can really be hands on in the sub. Kids would love it I would think.

My kids got out of school early so we made a quick run down from Tulsa. My five year old son has really gotten into submarines since getting one for Christmas. He was free my daughter was $4 and I got the veteran price of $5. Great deal! It started off innocent enough. We climbed down into the sub. A... More
