  • A must see for any WWII history buff or mechanical machinery aficionado. The museum is pretty decent, with some notable displays including a working periscope, sectioned torpedoes, and nice wall graphics depicting the events of WWII. The real star is the boat. Just wander around, stare at the machinery and valves, try to figure out what it all does and marvel at the ingenuity of those who designed and operated it. Admire the beautiful polished brass, copper, and stainless parts. Imagine yourself out at sea in this boat with 59 other men for months at a time, enduring depth charges and U-boats, with only good meals to keep your spirits up.
  • Loved this place. It made me cry a couple of times while reading some of the history and listening to the interviews on the big screen TV. My teenagers were touched as well. Going through the submarine was a great learning experience. It ended up being our favorite part of our whole trip Michigan.
  • I loved seeing this place! It tied into what I saw when I was at Pearl Harbor. It really brings history to life!
  • So much information to take in but it is displayed in an enjoyable fashion, you want to go back for more! The loved it!
  • This was my 3rd or 4th visit to the sub. For those that don't know, they offer a program where cub scouts or boy scouts can spend the night on the sub. So much better than just a tour. Sleeping in an enlisted man's bunk or an officer's quarters is a great experience; one most people will never get. I am thankful for the opportunity to sleep on both the USS Silversides as well as the Coastguard Cutter. Two boats with plenty of history defending our country.
