  • great time to make people interested in the maritime world and even children. It was worth it to know the interior of the submarine

  • The visit to this submarine Museum is part of the package of the Cultural Space of the Navy. It's well worth it. Interesting to know the interior of an appliance of this. What impressed me most, for me a real mystery: How can anyone sleep in beds so small and narrow?

  • Walk about 40 minutes. Through Dummies, we can get an idea of how was the routine of the crew when the submarine was in activity. We can see the accommodation (beds), kitchen, bathroom, etc. It costs 8.00 R$ (whole) and entitles the ticket for the Ship Bauru. Requirements: willingness to go down and up stairs very steep and short step, down to a "room" to another. Although it has air conditioning, I don't recommend it to anyone who has an aversion to enclosed spaces.

  • Para quem quer conhecer um submarino de verdade por dentro, vale uma visita ao Espaço Cultural da Marinha.
