Interesting exhibits on the history of the submarine force. The USS Nautilus is behind the museum and you can tour that as well. While I was there, I got to see a submarine coming home to return to the base next door. Pretty cool!

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.
