We saw this Museum and Park while visiting Pearl Harbor. We hadn't really heard of it, so didn't know what to expect. We were all very impressed, though! It's pretty amazing to walk through an actual submarine from back in the day. It's quite fascinating to see the crew quarters, engine room, galley, etc. Hats off to the brave souls... More

Very interesting. My family went through it in about 20minutes. I went down and didn't get far before I found out that I was claustrophobic and went back out on deck to wait for them.

We thought it was a worthwhile experience. Took us maybe 30 minutes. We skipped the museum. Hard to replicate experience of being in the sub.

WOW!!! What an amazing adventure. I have a lot of respect for our vets but seeing what a submariner did took me to a whole new level of appreciation. If you are going to see the USS ARIZONA make certain that you take this tour!!!

Very interesting place to visit. If you are claustrophobic not a good idea to go inside the submarine.

I am sad to write a negative review since I have always recommended this as a great activity for kids (I have been there with my grandkids on many occasions.) For the first time ever, I was not offered the audio guide when we turned in our ticket. The people behind the counter said it is complimentary, not guaranteed. I... More

As a child, I toured the German submarine at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. We now were able to experience "our sides" version. We would strongly recommend the audio accompaniment to the tour; it adds so much detail, in both the submarine and in the museum. Also, the memorial to all those submarine crews lost is very...

This is just an iconic submarine that people should explore to understand what submariners were subjected to during the second world war and how crews worked and operated in this type of environment. Fascinating piece of history.

Pearl Harbor is well maintained and the Bowfin is one of the main attractions. Best part is the Bowfin is right there on site, no bus required like some of the other attractions.

Visited with a family of four this week right after visiting the USS Arizona Memorial. Seeing and being able to experience the inside of a WWII submarine was quite interesting. Really amazed by the sophisticated equipment and construction of a ship that was built in the 1940's. Each of us was provided a little radio with recorded narratives of the... More
