The center houses a museum of sorts with lots of interactive displays, a Pioneer Sub replica, mock-ups of the Hunley that you can climb into, movies, artifacts and best of all, The H.L. Hunley itself! They have a great gift shop too. Come for a couple of hours and enjoy the trek through history.

Got a Groupon, so it was a good value. Sat and Sun only. Good guided tour. Lots if interesting stuff, and great displays, but can't see the sub. It's behind plexiglass in a tank of solution and dimly lit. You can barely make it out. I was disappointed. I wish they would put more underwater lights in the tank. Maybe... More

Please see my review under the subject, H. L. Hunley Confererate Civil War submarine. It's well worth the visit, and reservations might be necessary depending on the time or day.

Interesting visit and interesting to learn about the H.L. Hunley. Lots of exhibits. The only thing is that you cannot see the Hunley. It's submerged in a vat of caustic fluid. You look at it from above, but with the glass doors you can't even get close enough to see it well or take a good photo. The docents shared... More

The tour was informative. Its crazy to think about men had to sit in that sub as small as it was. Although maritime history isnt necessary my... More
