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.

Always have a good time when we visit, very knowledgeable guide. Plan to spend at least 2 or 3 hours when you go to see all of the exhibits and tour inside the sub and the Coast Guard cutter.

Silverside Sub Museum is a very nice way to spend a couple of hours. The museum is very well done. The focus is on the Pacific theater of World War II, but there is some information on other aspects of submarines. The highlight of course...More

We went to see the Silversides today because it was raining and we needed something to do. So glad we went. We purchased the Two boat and museum tour $15 for adults and $10 for kids. It was totally worth it. A real submariner gave...More
