This was a great visit - the submarine has a fascinating story, and the kids loved climbing around and touring the inside of the ships. Definitely worth the time and money and recommend a stop for anyone visiting the island!

You’d think that if a person made a donation to the museum you’d at least get a giving receipt, as promised. I asked four times, but all I hear are cricket sounds!More

No. Getting on and going through the submarine and the destroyer require stairs, even ladders. The US Navy did not worry about ADA in WW II.
