It’s a nice little attraction to do if you have time. It’s pretty cheap to go too. It’s nothing crazy amazing, but for the price you can’t complain. They have a good bit of stuff and it’s pretty informative. I really liked the little gift...More

Disappointing. Loaded with minutia which only made sense to people with knowledge of submarine operations ALso, crowded so much sd to permit special items stand out.

Small local museum. Wished we could have gone into a submarine but that is not what this small museum is about. Watched part of a movie about subs, and lots of artifacts. Enjoyed talking to the front desk person.

Museum under repair following hurricane damage - hence half price admission. The lower level focuses on diesel powered subs, the upstairs on nuclear. Lots of interesting things to sea and a continuous running movie to learn about life on a sub. It’s a vital part...More

The Museum is still putting itself back together after recovering from the 2017 hurricane season, but is well worth the time and very economical expense. A pleasure for young and old alike. Location is convenient and close to King's Bay submarine base.

Must have been some special even because there is never a problem with parking in that area. Don't know what the problem could have been that day.
