World War 2 sub., unbelievable living conditions for our sailors. Great museum for the whole family. Bowfin crew rescued George H W Bush. Museum also informative. Well worth the price and educational.

Well worth the visit if you have not seen a sub before from the inside. To imagine how these men had the mind set to work in these tight quarters. The sub has been well kept, and a lot of spit and polish. To read...More

Was cool to see how the men lived while on the submarine. Very tight quarters. Worth it to listen to the audio portion so you can learn more about what you see.

Pearl Harbour complex very impressive. Touring the submarine was a great experience. Was interesting to see how the sailors lived and worked in such close confines.

Other than the USS Missouri battleship, this was a highlight at Pearl Harbor. These were our top two exhibits.

Went down inside the submarine, Bowfinger and also went through the Museum across from the Bowfinger. It was fascinating and very informative. Don't forget to get your headsets at the booth in front of the Bowfinger, great to hear the commentary.

was fantastic to be able to get in to every part of the submarine. I would recommend doing it early as the sub heats up during the day & it can be a bit claustrophobic because there is a lot of people in it

The Bowfin itself is just a self-guided walkthrough. It really depends when you go/how busy it is. We went during off-season and it took us about 20-30 minutes.
