You can easily walk around the "submarine" and read the information boards in 1/2 hour. I enjoyed the benches with the insignia of the different crews. Easy to navigate in a wheelchair.

I had no idea of this memorial. It is beautiful and the graphic design is very fitting. It is an easy walk around the memorial, and please prepare to take the time to read and reflect on the sacrifices of our brave military.

We visited the USS Clamagore as part of our Patriots Point tour. The sub is the least impressive of the 3 on show, and its rusting bodywork is not that good . The boat needs a lot of TLC to be restored to previous glories!!

This Memorial was moving, as it made me think of those who serve/have served in a submarine. It is an easy walk around the "buried" sub, and it is a good place for pictures. Should be a part of any Patriot's Point visit.

This is a must see part of an all day hands on history experience. A quiet and peaceful walk that took us about half an hour. The markers along the walk sparked much conversation with the kids and provided for a lot of reflection.
