“A unique experience!”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

I was very keen on visiting this unique museum ; wherein an old and decommissioned submarine has been converted to a museum. It was an eye-opener, to take a walk through the narrow corridors and cramped bunkers where our navy cadets spend months. Also, it was an educational experience as we learn things about submarine design.

“Connect with The Navy”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

If you have ever thought how do sailors and officials live inside a submarine in water for weeks, INS Kurusura is a MUST VISIT place. The submarine is the first-of-its-kind museum in Asia and has been customized as a tourist attraction. Proper guided tours, in Hindi and Telugu, free of charge, are available. Photography is allowed provided you pay extra(Rs50 as mentioned on the rate board) at the ticket counter for taking the camera inside. It also has an assorted display of equipments used including Torpedo missiles. Very near to R K Beach, so easily accessible.
