“Not open!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2013

Sign said their hours are Wed-Sat until 6pm. We arrived on Wednesday at 5pm and there were chains on the gate, not a car in the lot and mail slipped between the locked gate so ibwould assume no one had been there for a while. So as interesting as it would have been to tour the ship we didnt have an opportunity. My kids were not happy!

“Really cool!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 3, 2013

Awesome how you can walk through an actual submarine! Gives you a different perspective on how the servicemen lived! Reasonable price and goo history lesson.

“Unique exhibit in a unique location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

If you are in Muskogee go see the USS Batfish. I've been to several preserved submarines and this one is in exceptionally good shape. Very interesting. If you go on an off day you might get the entire submarine to yourself like I did. It was haunting an amazing.

“This was so cool!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2013

This place is an absolute must see! The submarine was so cool. It is a great place to take kids. Our boys climbed all over and thru this submarine and loved it so much we went thru it twice! We really enjoyed all the war memorabilia. The outside of the Memorial Park is in great condition and well kept. However, the inside was cluttered and dirty. Also, the women's bathroom was not in working condition and had the building smelling bad. It is still worth the visit! Just be sure to stop somewhere else to use the facilities.

“really great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 19, 2013

They have a little museum where you pay for everything then you go outside to the sub. My grandma always took us to museums when we were younger so I wanted to show my fiance these things. He really liked it too. If you have problems fitting through small doors then you may not be able to go through the sub.
