  • You can go inside this historical submarine, quite narrow passage inside it. cool experience if you want to see the inside of a submarine and the history behind it. There is a skating park & surabaya ...  more »
  • The place is actually interesting but there is not much activity we can do here. That is too bad. We can finish our sightseeing just in 15-20 minutes. In the future it will be better if they add some ...  more »

  • Very interesting place to visit. Never been inside a submarine before. In the cinema (building next to the submarine) you can see the history of the Indonesian navy. This submarine actually has been used by the Navy. When I visited the vessel several groups of school children were guided through the submarine. One could easily spend a few hours here. It's next to Surabaya plaza mall.
  • It is not an everyday occasion to board a submarine. When you spot one, and you had a chance to enter it, you just can't resist. The subs was a piece of art. It was Russian made. You still can even smell the fuel. You'll wonder how hard life would be for the crew. If you watched The Hunt for Red October, this one was not even close to it. So, come over and see it for yourself. It's a cool place for selfie.
  • This is actually a good place to visit. Near with Gubeng station and in the street way. Easy to find. The price is around Rp.10.000/ person. We can learn about sub marine. But I think the developer should make it more creative by adding some activity to make people stay longer and interesting.
  • Great naval public monument, in shape of a submarine. Formerly Russian-made Whiskey Class KRI Pasopati, this boat had served Indonesian Navy from 1962 till 1989. Struck from naval register in 1991, she was moved here in 1996, dedicated and opened to the public as a museum. Located next to Delta Plaza, The museum is quite interesting to visit, especially for those who are interested to know a Navy attack submarine from close by. There are also a place to relax outside, overlooking the Kali Mas, next to the monument. Unfortunately, the area is not wheelchair friendly.
  • This is great. My first time seeing a submarine. After exploring the submarine, we can watch a video about the history.
