What a wonderful piece of history! Really enjoyed touring the USS Silverside. And the museum contains authentic pieces from that era and great educational information.Really gives you a humbling appreciation for the sacrifices our military makes for our freedom! A must see

We had a work retreat here in one of there board rooms and then toured the museum and ships. What a cool experience to do a hands on tour of a WWII Submarine. If your even close to this, you have to check it out.

Lots to see and do for everyone. The displays are informative, some are hands-on. It was great to visit the submarine and the coast guard boat, an add on, but worth it.

USS Silversides is a venerable boat and the most decorated submarine you can still visit. She was one of the most successful submarines during the Pacific Theater of World War II, with 23 confirmed kills over 14 patrols. In all that time, only one crew...More
