Visiting the Batfish was a most enjoyable and educational experience! Admission prices are very reasonable with senior and military discounts available. The museum area is small but comprehensively presents exhibits and information in ways that are not sensory overloading. The real star of this attraction...More

I enjoyed the museum items better than the submarine - too tight and close quarters for me, my family/child thoroughly enjoyed the whole package and wnats to go again.

If you're into submarines or anything about WWII this be a great place to go. Who thought they'd have a submarine in Oklahoma? You can take your time and explore this sub because it's not timed. You'll appreciate what you're about to see if you...More

This is a nice little museum. The building is a little tired but the interior displays are nicely done. Outside the memorial plaques to the lost boats are sobering. I've toured other WWII subs and each time I am impressed at the sailors who manned...More

We spent a couple hours touring the submarine and looking around this park. The prices were reasonable for this type of museum and the staff was friendly. We will be back again.
