Great place to stop if your visiting and in downtown Cleveland. If you don't like cramped spaces, I wouldn't recommend it. If you're a history buff like me, it's a good time. Wonderful to see how our service members had to live for months at see, Could You Do It??

This is a real World War II submarine, permanently docked on Cleveland's lakefront. No stairs in, you go down ladders into the interior and walk from front to back, pausing along the way to give thanks to those who served aboard her.

The USS Cod Submarine Memorial was very interesting and educational. I think if you are a tourist it is only fair to visit the smaller and historic attractions to show your respect. Smaller as in not as big as the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame museum but equally as enjoyable if enjoy learning. The staff where very helpful and... More

I have toured many navy ships and this is one of the best. The boat is in great shape for her age and is a great way to go back in time.

Very nice ww2 restored submarine. I was only able to see the sub from the ouside and was unable to board when I went to see it. Not much else to do there.

The U.S.S. Cod is a World War 2 era sub that had distinguished service right up until the the 70's. It is well maintained and very original. Visitors have to use the same ladders and hatches used by the crew. I truly liked the tour and was lucky enough to be behind a former crewman who was visiting and giving... More

Very interesting and very historic - from WWII. And you can go thru the sub and see just how close the quarters were. If you aren't claustrophobic, visit the COD.

Being from Quebec, I have never - and probably never will - be aboard an actual submarine. A submarine, y'all! What an exciting experience, both from a historical and an adventure perspective. You even get to reenact living in the actual sub, making it even more memorable. I highly recommend!

Not for everyone, tight spaces, if you enjoy military circa 1945 worth a look. It does establish the fact that early submariners were a very tough breed...one interesting fact, due to a treaty with Canada, the USS Cod has no propeller.
