  • Class museum and wonderful tour. It's hard to believe what our WWII sailors had to endure to keep America safe. Exceptional day's activity.  more »

  • The Silversides was one of the most successful and lucky boats of WWII (she only lost one Sailor during her wartime service). The museum is an excellent overview of submarine warfare, and the Silversi...  more »

  • Very cool Museum. The tour of the submarine was pretty extensive you got to walk through the whole thing. Nothing was rushed. Would definitely recommend anybody who's a fan of things like that.
  • This is an authentic World War II submarine floating in the Muskegon Lake channel. Truly a piece of history. It is very cool to walk around inside of this thing. I can't imagine serving on a submarine. You might have a hard time if you are claustrophobic. Nonetheless, it is worth the time and money to visit.
  • Last tour of the day was earlier than we anticipated so if you want that I'd call and find out when it is. You can explore on your own though which was fun. We had a baby carrier (front carry) and had to watch for no head hitting but otherwise not a problem at all. It was very interesting and clean. Mostly things to read and see but a few hands on things through out for kids. Quite a bit to see. You could stay a few minutes or a few hours. I get motion suck easily and was fine inside; submarine moved minimally, coast Guard boat moved a bit more but we kept moving and I was fine. All in all definitely worth seeing. A piece of history preserved.
  • This is a terrific museum. Make sure you go through the museum to learn about Silversides before you self-taught the sub. Fascinating.
  • Museum was pretty small. The sub and ship you can tour are kind of neat.
