  • A former U.S. Navy sailor, Art, was our "host" in the first compartment of the sub. He was terrific! Although he didn't serve on a sub, he knew just about everything there is to know about the U.S. Re...  more »
  • We visited this sub and totally enjoyed it! My wife and I very much enjoyed the fact that it’s a self guided tour which means we could go as slow as we wanted! We were surprised at how spacious it was...  more »

  • Vintage piece of beloved and well-preserved US naval history. This is a great place to bring kids. Their natural curiosity will have them asking all kinds of questions. Pro tip, Requin means “shark” in French. Some of the tour guides might quiz you. It can get crowded on the sub which does lessen the joy of the experience. It’s best to visit when crowds are small at the Science Center. They might consider creating an entry system to limit the number of visitors on the sub at any one time. This would allow visitors to see the sub at a less hectic and rushed paced.
  • Well worth visiting if you're in the area. The museum does a great job of keeping the Requin preserved, and making the visit a learning experience.
  • Really interesting at first, but that wears off in about 10 minutes, then you just look for the exit. Difficult to navigate with crowds as they make movement around the submarine very uncomfortable and cramped.
  • Best place I've been to
  • It was really nice to see how the men worked and lived in tight quarters. To serve our country .

Where to stay in Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh's downtown area is so packed with hotels it is often possible to get top rooms here at bargain prices. Bear in mind that most visitors to Pittsburgh want to stay in this central part of town, so you do need to look for discounts early and book well in advance. If you're visiting universities or other attractions outside of Pittsburgh itself, you can find comfortable airport accommodations just west of the city. Consider also the college neighborhood of Oakland, offering some of the least expensive rooms in Pittsburgh.
