I am a sucker for all things military and historical. This hit both marks. Fascinating to see how seamen lived in such close quarters. Worth the stop and small fee for entry.

It was really interesting to be able to go inside an actual submarine. The plaques around the area sharing about the lost subs and naming those on "eternal patrol" were very nice. We were there because my husband's great uncle was lost at sea on...More

Wonderful to see Military history. So enjoyable to be able to walk inside. I'm 6ft tall and weigh 400 lbs and was still able to get around. It is not handicap accessible. The staff was very polite and friendly. I thank them all.
