Very cool to see! You actually go through the submarine and see everything from bunks to torpedo tubes. Amazingly, not claustrophobic at all.

Was the best experience at Pearl Harbour. Walking (and climbing) through the submarine, and listening to the narration (make sure you get the free headphones and narration) was a moving and very interesting experience. The museum next door was also very interesting.

Great opportunity to experience the insides of an actual sub and to get an idea of the conditions that those men went through during the war. The sub is very well restored and the audio tour is very informative, very glad we took this tour.

This was a fun attraction to visit while at Pearl Harbor. It is self guided and you can wander the submarine and see what it is like inside. Walking, smaller quarters and stairs are part of this attraction. I imagine kids would have fun, but it great for almost any age.

This is a fascinating, life size exhibit. You can wander over the submarine on a self guided tour or get headphones for extra information. We walked on deck, manned the guns and climbed through the interior from one end to the other. The intricate detail of the submariners' lives and the machinery of the vessel are all on display.

Amazing to see how much they can fit in a small space. I highly recommend seeing this, especially if you've never been in a submarine.

Tour the USS Bowfin as part of our Pearl Harbor Passport Tour and was very impressed with seeing the interior of this submarine. It really brought into perspective just how close the quarters are aboard a submarine and what life must have been like for its crew. We used the audio tour and it really helped to make the tour...
