They have a little museum to browse through before checking out the submarine. Fun activity for girls outside and other clubs or family day trip.

Really enjoyed the 'Batfish' and War Memorial Park in Muskogee. It should be on your travel agenda. It's not very well advertised, but really well done. Help get the word out.
