  • Fun place to visit. The museum itself is a little dry, but had some fun kids activities. Walking through the SUB is the best part.
  • As our kids are home schooled this was our first field trip of the year. What a beautiful day and great weather too. I have been to this location so many times and did not know this was really here. My wife and I spent hours reading everything in the museum. The best part was the tour of the submarine and the battleship for me. So much history. We signed out the passes from our local library so it only cost us the drive into the city. What a great memory!
  • The museum was okay. There were not much hands on for the kids. The kids did enjoy the presentation and experiments with the staff. The staff was very friendly and inviting. We did have a great time touring the submarine and the boat located outside the museum which made it worthwhile. The kids were really excited about it. Overall can visit for a good day. The area around the museum is lively during the summer and early fall.
  • Love this place. The USA Olympia is a must see :possibly the most impressive historical relic in the city! (and there are many of these in Philly!)
  • Nice museum. A bit small, but they have a sub and crossed you can explore outside.
