“Interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Great glimpse into the life of those serving on submarines. Not like the movies!!
Good audio which was free but get there early to avoid the crowds, as it can get very hot in the submarine.

“Interesting insight into submarine life!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 27, 2012

Very interesting self guided tour (with free audio device). Inside of the the ship was very clean, but somewhat limited in size and narrow access (as you might expect) to the various sections of the vessel. The interior reminded me of what you might find in a WWII era ship, but amazingly the Bowfin was still in use until 1981.

“Worth the money”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2012 via mobile

This was only $10 and comes with an audio tour. The doorways are tight as you would expect a submarine would be. They take your picture before you go in. When you come out they sell the picture for $10 on a replica newspaper. Overall this was a good tour.
