A fun little exploring side-trip while at Pearl Harbor. It's amazing how tightly-packed a submarine is! There is a audio-tour available. The kids were moving too fast for me to be able to listen to each numbered stop, but it seemed to be well done....More

I don't think so. I recall waiting for the Arizona film to start and then going out to the site but I think for the submarine you just go whenever.
