“History at its best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 3, 2012

Everything you wanted to know and more about Submarines. Their displays were extensive.... from the earliest sub to the current fleet. They had hands-on displays, and a cute movie.

“For true submarine devotees”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 16, 2012

This is kind of a small town, homemade museum, for true submarine devotees only. It's a bid sad, ragged around the edges. If you are really into submarines, you will enjoy your visit. Tons of stuff, packed in tight.

“Packed to the top with submarine memorabilia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 12, 2012

We love going here and have been a dozen times or so since we have lived near here. The museum is loaded with history and the staff are very knowledgeable. A must see when your in downtown St. Mary's.

“It's a sad little museum honestly.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

I'm not one to write bad reviews. And I'm not trying to say anything bad. Its a TINY little museum, I took my son who LOVES submarines, and he thought it was neat. It was like $8 a person, and its a self guided tour. We could have been done in like 10 minutes, easily, but we walked REALLY slow to try to drag it out. And then at the end of the tour, there is a TINY old television that shows a video about submarines we watched. It was an okay experience, nothing I would ever do again though. It really wasn't worth the money.
