Great accumulation of the history of submarines. The working periscope is a fun addition. St. Marys has a proud place in America’s submarine activity. So many amazing boats—-one of the things I learned was that they are called boats, always thought they were called ships....More

We were in town to visit our submariner and took time to visit the museum prior to meeting our family stationed nearby. Very glad that we did. The museum has a lot of artifacts to look at. They also have a film that helps people...More

It’s a nice little attraction to do if you have time. It’s pretty cheap to go too. It’s nothing crazy amazing, but for the price you can’t complain. They have a good bit of stuff and it’s pretty informative. I really liked the little gift...More

Disappointing. Loaded with minutia which only made sense to people with knowledge of submarine operations ALso, crowded so much sd to permit special items stand out.

Small local museum. Wished we could have gone into a submarine but that is not what this small museum is about. Watched part of a movie about subs, and lots of artifacts. Enjoyed talking to the front desk person.

Museum under repair following hurricane damage - hence half price admission. The lower level focuses on diesel powered subs, the upstairs on nuclear. Lots of interesting things to sea and a continuous running movie to learn about life on a sub. It’s a vital part...More

Must have been some special even because there is never a problem with parking in that area. Don't know what the problem could have been that day.
