It was fascinating to tour the inside of this sub that you could walk through at your leisure. The sleeping area for the crew and the galley were so small you wonder how 80 people did it--very thin and agile young 20 year olds. Then I read the history of the sub and they had many successes in taking out enemy ships. Another fun feature was a photo option on the torpedo in front of the sub. Definitely recommend this for people of all ages.

They don't allow purses - and don't let you in until you've discarded your purse (either in your car, or at the bag check $6-10 each). All boats to the USS Arizona were suspended due to dock repair. The USS Bowfin submarine was closed to visitors because it was headed to dry dock for repairs in 2 days, but the museum was open @ $22/person (no discount). The museum was interesting (not enough to snap any pix), and told many stories, but relatively dry - like most other museums.

I never imagined that I would go inside a submarine. It was amazing to see and the cramped conditions that the sailors lived in. It was a bit claustrophobic, but very interesting as well.

OMG, this was a fantastic experience to see first hand how life was on a ww2 sub. I am 6'2" space is certainly at a premium.

Without a guided tour, the sub was difficult to understand. The museum was fantastic with a lot of history.

A friend and I visited the rest of Pearl Harbor last summer when we visited Hawaii for the first time. We did not have a chance to see this submarine and the park on this end of the land, but we made a point to see it this time. This is a very historical part of our country. As you walk through the submarine, you get an idea how the sailors lived in cramped quarters as they served our country. This is a must-do part of the tour of Pearl Harbor.

Museum and walk inside the sub were very interesting. Not a way I would like to live. Worth the time.

The submarine itself is quite small but it’s really cool to be able to see inside. There’s also a museum which is nicely air conditioned and very informative. Along with the Missouri, one of the better museums at Pearl Harbour.

After arriving, the stand-by line to go to Pearl Harbor was over a 2 hour wait. We decided to check out the submarine and museum because the kids really wanted to go inside. Definitely an experience. Take advantage of the headset to really create an interactive experience. There are lots of activities for the kids to take part of and enjoy. We easily spent over 2 hours here.
