“Nautilus Submarine Museum”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

This was so fasinating for me, to be inside a real submarine. I have never experienced it, as I love to learn about history. So this is a must see!!

“Top Quality Display.”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Great museum to visit if you are nautically inclined, the USS Nautilus is a piece of history all the the access to the sub is limited to the forward section but still very interesting. The main museum itself, a great exhibition of the history of US subs. I had a great chat to an old veteran who actually served on the Nautilus and was now working as a guide at the museum. Top marks!

“Free admission. A lot of history.”
Reviewed January 19, 2013

The admission is free ( they accept donations). The actual tour of the Nautilus is not handicap accessible, but the museum is. It is great for Naval and military enthusiasts. It is worth a visit as it is very educational in nature.( I am not into this subject, but my son and husband found it informative).

“Pretty cool and FREE museum”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We were going to go here regardless, but it was even better when we realized it was free (donations are encouraged, though they do not pressure you at all). There is an exhibit where you learn a great deal submarines and the history of them, and then you get to board an actual submarine and tour it. Pretty cool experience, would recommend stopping by if you are visiting Mystic.

“Need to go back and finish”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

We attended a Change of Command ceremony in the museum so we didn't get to see everything we would have liked. Enjoyed the parts we did see, including our whirl-wind tour of the USS Nautilus since it was close to closing time. Well worth it.
