Once in my life I wanted to see for real the inside that we use to see in movies. I was really impressed with the periscope.
I've wanted to visit the USS Albacore for several years, finally, found an excuse to make the trip. The parking lot was surprisingly full, for a hot Saturday in July. I thought the admission fee schedule was OK, especially since the "youth" rate goes up to age 17 and I had my 13 yo grandson with me. Bonus: He even... More
This museum is very interesting and certainly worth the time if you are interested in submarines. The small museum has interesting exhibits about this historical submarine. Walking through the submarine is an eye-opening experience if you have never seen one. Talk about close quarters. The price is only five dollars, so you can leave an extra donation to help with...

Note that this was never an armed vessel and was for testing new sub technology only, so there are no... More
In my travels I like to check out Military Interests and the USS Albacore was but one of many USS Submarines I've toured. Of all the ones I've seen this one was the best.
