Fascinating submarine to look through. Self tour with a provided audio guide and headphones. Go through the sub doors sideways!

This is a cool piece of American History and a good spot for WWII history buffs. I consider it much better than the U-boat in Chicago or the sub at OMSI in Portland. If you are smart, include it in your trip to the Pearl Harbor site, it's very interesting and worth the time.

The USS Bowfin museum is another of those must do things; especially if you enjoy history. If you are very tall you may have issue getting through the submarine but it is worth it. Make sure you get the audio tour.

If you are interested in submarines and WW II, this is the tour to do. The sub is authentic and fascinating, and the museum is interesting as well.

Opportunity to tour around a WW2 submarine and gain a small appreciation of what life must have been like for the submariners on board. We combined with a tour to the USS Arizona Memorial which is next door.
