Most Americans won’t have to travel far to find a submarine museum near them. The various submarines around the United States range in age from USS Drum built in 1941 to the USS Dolphin built in 1968. The museums have something for everybody and many have programs tailored specifically to youth and scout programs.
Next time you visit one of these submarines be sure to consider a guided tour where offered. Guided tours offer an experience above and beyond a simple walk through. Many tour guides served aboard submarines themselves and lend a first hand account to daily life aboard a submarine. Where guided tours are unavailable there will often be audio tours.
Some other services typically offered are overnight stays, events, and field trip opportunities or even remote learning experiences. Dont miss out on a great opportunity. Tour a submarine today!
It is important to note, submarines are inherently tight spaces which may be difficult for some to navigate through. Come prepared to step over and through bulkheads and watch your head!
