  • It is a nice enough place. But it's small and with less content than I would expect from a "Museum". Self-guided, meaning no one there to ask about anything. I was expecting to see the items in the websites imagery but only thing there was the images. They had a partial moch up of a control room and limited controls. As many subs that have been decommissioned they could have cut out an entire forward section and dropped it into the building. Just the normal underway conditions and explations of the equipment would be more educational and interesting than what is currently provided. 5 stars? Hell no! I see a lot of 4 and 5 stars, but I cannot figure out why. Who ever gave it that was extremely generous. I would have liked to get on one of the subs next door and give my family a proper tour. Unfortunately, they do not offer tours on active subs. My honest opinion... bypass this site unless you are in the area and ya got nothing better to do for half an hour.
  • They have a wide variety of exhibits detailing interesting naval technologies over the years. From dive suits to torpedoes to a sub's bridge, and then some, and my kids enjoyed all of it. Their kids' science day setup, on the other hand...seemed disorganized, cramped, and set up in a way where there wasn't sufficient time or space for the kids to actually complete all of the activities in two hours... Far beyond the attention span of my kids. The people manning the various kids' stations were visibly frazzled by the whole thing, too.
  • Our visit fell on one of the Saturdays when they have STEM experiments. We enjoyed learning a little more about the Navy and got to see great images and actually pieces to a submarine. I think we will be going there again for sure.
  • This place should really be charging admission. Uber cool it's not. My family had a great time with all the exhibits, alot was hands on! The Gift shop was good size with very a great selection. It was a nice drive there too.
  • I just went there for the third time today. Took another close friend. He likes it and said he could spend a whole day there. It's free, so I figure just to visit as much as possible. I got my step dad a poster, he has been there before, and he really likes submarines. Who doesn't like submarines? And the people who work under the sea especially in combat roles deserve to be honored, respected, and appreciated.
