Living history in Oklahoma. Grandparents fought in the war, and I feel our kids need to know what sacrifices were made. Enjoyed visiting, was somber but also nice. They also had some actors in retro army attire, made for good atmostphere.

Very neat experience! We toured the submarine and visited the gift shop. It's great that you can really be hands on in the sub. Kids would love it I would think.

My kids got out of school early so we made a quick run down from Tulsa. My five year old son has really gotten into submarines since getting one for Christmas. He was free my daughter was $4 and I got the veteran price of $5. Great deal! It started off innocent enough. We climbed down into the sub. A... More

The boat is really in authentic shape with record sound as if you were underway. The park is the only one in the nation that is a memorial for all 52 submarines lost in WWII. A must stop!

If you are a history buff, especially a WWII history buff, this place is awesome; especially to hear what they went through to get this thing here. Only down side is you walk away smelling like Diesel and grease, but well worth the price of admission.

There aren't a lot of places where you can take a walk through a submarine, and very few of them are on dry land. There are a wide variety of exhibits and this is an excellent museum for anyone with a history interest.

If you love history and want to learn about the fine men and women who have served our country, this is a great way to do it. It is a place you can take your family. You will learn more about the war then you did in your history books!

This is a great place to visit alone or with the family. Who hasn't wondered what it would be like in a sub and this place will scratch that itch. It's pretty cool to have free access to walk through the sub at your leisure and explore to your heart's content. Good price, great entertainment - the kids loved it.... More

The Batfish is a must see. Take some time here see all the displays at the war memorial park a. Make sure and come when they are having a anniversary or the live reenactments of how this icon sailed the seas and kept America safe. If your lucky you might even get to talk to one of the sailors that... More

We weren't able to tour the exhibit as we got to town later than expected, but we were able to see some of it from outside the fence. Looks like a very interesting vessel to tour. Hope we make it back that way to get the full experience.
