I read about The Hunley the first time in Clive Cussler's book where he discussed locating in in the mid 90's. When they raised it in 2000 I read more about it. As soon as I knew I was going to be in Charleston for work I knew this would be one of my stops. It is only open on the weekend for tours. It is out in the middle of nowhere and not that easy to find. Hopefully whe the conservation is complete and it goes on permanent display it will be more easily accessible. They have a small museum in the front and you get to see how small the inside really was. The tour guide I had really seems to love what he's doing and was very interesting to listen to. You get to spend a few minutes on the observation deck where you can observe the sub in the tank. If you are interested in Civil War history this is a stop you need to make.
