This was the 3rd time we visited The Submarine Force Museum. It is very interesting for kids and adults alike. Walk through using a hand held narrated device to guide you through the Nautilus. Free museum and Nautilus tour. Worth the stop!

Very interesting place to visit. It took about two hours to walk through the museum and tour the sub. The submarine was extremely cool to walk through along with the audio tour. Would go back again.

When we got there, I asked one of the employees behind the desk when the Nautilus was decommissioned, and I was told that it is still an active duty submarine. After looking at the sub and seeing all of the modifications made to make it a museum, I asked the NCO on the sub the same question and he told me that it was decommissioned in 1980 which made a whole lot more sense. They really need to make sure their employees know their facts. I couldnt leave without correcting the old fella. I think he was pretty embarassed. (rightfully so)

This is a well-designed museum about submarine life, history, and issues. There are several long and short video presentations, engaging displays, and a really nice audio tour of the SSN Nautilus (the first nuclear sub and the the first to sail under the North Pole ice cap. A wonderful gift shop cps off the experience.
