INS Kurusura Submarine Museum, Visakhapatnam

4.5
Learn about the Indian Navy and one of its most famous ships at INS Kurusura Submarine Museum, a museum dedicated to the Kalvari-class submarine, decommissioned in 2001 after 31 years of service. Take a tour of the 91.3 m (300 ft) craft, with retired naval personnel among the guides who show visitors around.

  • A Good opportunity to visit and see for oneself the insides of a submarine. An out of service submarine with suitable modifications for general public has been kept for visitation on the beach road...  more »
  • One does not come across a Submarine museum easily. The main constraint in a sub is the space. For example, an Officers dining table also works as an emergency operating table. For that purpose...  more »

  • Good place to be visited within 20 minutes..It's very good place for children and students to visit so that they can get some knowledge that how our Navy people fight during wars. The staff explains every point. Visit in early hours before 6 pm. The climate here is very good. Families should visit this place to enjoy that moment. After visit any one have the clear idea about life the person who works in submarine.. exciting and informative too..
  • Amazing display and amazing system...you get to know how our people stay, fight and live during the times of war in these submarines. It's huge..the best part is they have develop manequines to demonstrate how people stay in submarine. It simple fantastic and a must visit place.. it open daily from morning 10.30 to noon 12 and then from 2 to evening 8.30..it us also open on Monday from 2-8.30 pm
  • Must see. Historic museum. INS Kursura S20 is the first submarine of Indian Navy imported from Russia. Submarine is quite big, long about 91 m. There are headphones available for guidance. Also Museum guides are available. Ticket fare is Rs. 70/- per adult and extra charges for carrying digital camera. Location is amazing beside Ramakrishna Beach. Lighting at evening & night is eye catching. Usually less crowded museum.
  • INS Kursura left me with a patriotic feeling and respect for the Navy.This will give you a feel of life in Submarine. Photo enthusiasts will need an extra ticket for your camera/mobile as well. You have Navy guys around explaining each of the compartment. Instead a voice over explanation can be added to each compartment. If you have a hobby of collecting things, You will find a little gift store at a corner with interesting things. Opposite to this is the Navy air craft museum.
  • I have seen personally this submarine. Inside it, very compact with machines & weapons and very little space & passage is there for movement of the Navy persons. Living/bed rooms sizes are less than the size of a bathroom. It really strange how the soldiers working here under the sea for months after months. Salute to our NAVY.
