WWII history buffs will love this place. Museum is very informative, with artifacts and much information. Took a self-tour of the USS Silversides, was not too busy, so we were able to take our time and see it all.

Class museum and wonderful tour. It's hard to believe what our WWII sailors had to endure to keep America safe. Exceptional day's activity.

The Silversides was one of the most successful and lucky boats of WWII (she only lost one Sailor during her wartime service). The museum is an excellent overview of submarine warfare, and the Silversides is an very well maintained boat. In fact, two of the...More
