Sub is a great exhibit to tour

The people on board do a great job explaining the sub. It is very interesting to explore and reminds me that I don't want to be on a sub!

An amazing glance back in time to a world War two Era submarine. Although this subject was commissioned in this time frame, it didn't see war time action. As you walk through the sub, your admiration only grows for the brave men who served on them. I was amazed that even though I had to duck down through the hatches,... More

This retired U.S. submarine is way cool to visit.I seriously doubt I could live on it for an extended period of time as its crew so obviously had to. The ancient, almost jerry-rigged nature of the vessel's mechanics is fascinating. Every square inch is used. Highly recommended for adults and children alike Our 4-year old granddaughter loves to visit and... More

Had a great visit with my kids (9&11) at New Year's Eve. You only have to show proof of admission if you go below deck, where a couple of friendly and knowledgeable staff are there to answer questions and point you in the right direction. You get to explore a single level of the submarine, with the tower and the... More

Went down the ladder and they had a guy that was a sub sailor meet you. lots of great information and would answer any questions. had another guy that was a volunteer and seemed a little cranky. All in all the sub is very well maintained and worth the visit

This is included with the Carnegie Science Center admission. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it was a really cool walk through tour of the submarine. It has rooms closed off showing typical items to be found in the submarine and it also has a pathway to the back of the submarine. There are very steep stairs to get... More

By buying admission to the Science Center, you can explore the workings of a submarine. This is a wonderful opportunity to take a tour of a underwater vehicle for adults and children. This may be the only time you get to explore a submarine. Wear good walking shoes as the floors can be slippery.

Need a taste of the military life, then visit the USS Requin. Everything is done well with attention to details. It was very informative for a non military person.

Great exhibit, the self guided tour was excellent. We stopped and chatted to a member of the museum staff located in the front torpedo bay, he was extremely knowledgable and really knew the history and the operation of the Sub. We didn't go into the main museum as it seemed to be more child orientated, I would recommend a visit... More
