You can see inside the submarine, clean place, some has ac, some are not. Good place for selfie ;). But careful, some 'door's between rooms are low, you often have to bend down.

If you want to feel the submarine ride here is the place. Here we can see the contents of the submarine in real. Although only a museum but here can get a valuable experience learning to know the history of the submarine.

Huge General statue at the bay which oversee the sea. Something different from the norm. For business trip is ok. On Holiday might be a good idea because of lack of facilities around the area.

Good way to experience life in submarine, especially the older submarine. The submarine started in the 1960's and in operation till late 80's. Couldn't imagine the life in those narrow,

The place provide motorcycle park but for car park, you should park at Surabaya plaza, next the museum. The submarine looks good from outside. It is a small submarine, so the corridor relatively narrow. So, you should not visited it on public holiday if you want to see the submarine interior.

Located next to the river (Kalimas) which run through the city. A small mall is located aside. Big parking space. McD, KFC and other foods is inside the mall. 1 backpack hotel,... More
