  • It's crazy to think that people spend a long period in a submarine. Very nice to be able to meet part of these military structures. The tour costs 10 reais and permit entry in the submarine and the ship. If you don't want to pay to get in to visit the helicopter.

  • Visit the submarine was a unique experience because I'm scared of enclosed areas and aquatic. It's very interesting being able to see how people can survive in there. I highly recommend!

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