I didn't really visit the actual museum, I did the audio tour of the USS NAUTILUS. It was interesting to see how Navy men lived when the sub was operational. The audio tour is self-guided so you can go at your own pace, they give...More
I suggest the audio tour. That being said, there are multiple exhibits in a main building. These exhibits talk about submarines and their weapons in their earliest forms. There are no mentions of anything within the past 40 years. Touring the retired Nautilus sub gives...More
This museum is small. Though it’s very interesting. You get to tour inside the submarine. It’s a self guided audio tour. The space inside is cramp, I guess just like in a real submarine situation. So just excuse yourself from other people if you go...More
On a visit to the New England States for my 70th. birthday, we accidentally learned of the Museum honoring the United States submarine service. There was no chance I was going to miss this. One morning we took off from Mystic to tour the museum....More
This museum is just outstanding. I used to bring my kids all the time. They could get as much out of it as their age allowed... each year learning a little bit more. Now I bring my grand kids! It's a great outing. The kids...More

Not being a local, can't answer directly. But after much searching (CT public transit leaves much to be desired and no route maps). I'm not allowed to put a link but if you search on SEA Corridor Routes and click on the first result you can check the schedule for Route 2 which goes from downtown New London and passes the sub base.
Route schedule say New London/Water street which is right downtown. Could be near the Amtrak station or the Greyhound bus station.
Hope this helps.
