Military Museum
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. Used on patrol missions during the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, the submarine's long and storied service remains a source of pride for the country's armed forces, who have lovingly maintained the ship and fitted its interiors with information panels and in situ props. Put INS Kurusura Submarine Museum into our Visakhapatnam trip generator and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • A good place for all those who dream to be inside a Submarine but could not make it into the navy for some reason or other. You will get the feel of being inside a submarine. Out of the comforts of your AC homes you will get to know how these men defend our country.
  • Its one of its kind in India. There are only five such live submarine exhibits in the world and one of them in India. One can get a fairly good know-how of interior functioning and spaces about a submarine. The people manning the submarine are ex-navy personnel, well behaved but very disciplinarian.
  • INS Kursura Submarine Museum is definitely a boon for tourists visiting the city; Guides in submarine are doing awesome work, functional details of submarine and life in it are clearly explained. One should visit it in his/her life time. Addition to this, original torpedoes and land mines also can be seen. It will be more enthusiastic in case Periscope is also exhibited.
  • Nothing special about this. You happily live your life without going there. But if you extra half an hour to kill...Go there enjoy...Feel proud you have been to a submarine now.
  • A great place. It's a great experience to be here. There are so much machine. It looks more beautiful as it's beside the sea.
