Fascinating view of WWII life of our submariners, even though this particular vessel did not see any combat. Provides "guests" of the lack of creature comforts on board, esp for the lower ranks. Make time to see it but not meant for claustrophobic or limited...More

We visited the USS Requin, but not the Science Center. The USS Requin can be toured separately for $7 per person, no discounts. While the walk through is fairly short, it is worth going aboard. I have always appreciated our military and their families for...More

While in town I came here and totally got to see a Cold War sub that was restored to action status. It truly makes you appreciate the service these men gave to their country while out at sea.

We went in because it was included with our Science Center Admission. It's something to see at least once. It's part of history and crazy to think how many people lived in there. Check it out. If you go in without the Science Center, it's...More

This is an actual WWII submarine. It is so small, and so cramped and yet held many sailors for long periods of time. After touring the boat, go right into the Carnegie Science Center. You and your children will have an amazing experience. Worth going...More

I have been to this a couple of times it is so fascinating to see the teeny tiny quarters which men lived in for months on end. Just such a slice of history. I recommend it highly for adults and kids

Even though it was closed when we were there, the experience was still amazing. The USS Requin sits on the riverwalk behind the Carnegie Science Center. It was commissioned in 1945 and removed from the navy in December 1971. It was the first Radar Picket...More

You can still l park in the Museum lot. I think it is free. You would just walk down to the river and sub is right there. It is cool - small and claustrophobic and every inch is used - I mean every inch!! You will love it.
