This mocked sub is only shown turret structure only above ground. Display is not in water. The best part is this is outside and totally free.

Well done memorial inspired by the days when subs and their crews used to be based here. Conning tower and tail are sticking out of the ground, while the grassy mound represents the sub hull. Gives you a good idea of the size and dimensions...More

Right across from Patriots Point is a small park with the cold war submarine and other items. There are plaques that describe what they are about. The best thing is that it is free. Plan about 15 minutes to view.

Its one of those places that people are a little confused. A memorial to the Cold War. Submariners were on a Cold Front Line. Rather fitting such a memorial is placed at Patriots Point well done.

You get to climb in and walk the length of the sub seeing various items inside. This is a must do if you are at Patriots Point but would be hard for elderly or people with disabilities.

Was a quick stop that caught my eye. very interesting if you read all the displays. Doesn't take long to see so worth a quick stop.

This memorial is very nice. It features a submarine buried in the ground with a nice path winding around it. It is worth a stop, but I wouldn't make it a priority on your trip.

A full-sized submarine, submerging in..... a field of grass??? Free exhibit....This caught my attention, by the ball field of the University of Charleston, in Mount Pleasant, S.C. The multiple plaques and explanatory pieces about the submarine corps of the Cold War era was fascinating.
