I am short, 5" 1, and I still had to duck when inside of this Submarine from WWII. It shows how little space these men had to live in when working on the sub. Really Amazing. A must see for anyone interested in History.

This is a real submarine open to the public through the Science Center. The displays are clear, the spaces are tight and the sense of realism is palpable.

Came upon this by accident while at another attraction. Loved the tour. It was engaging and interesting. A whole new perspective of life in the Navy. Worth the visit.

The USS Requin is a submarine located right outside the Carnegie Science Center. You can purchase tickets separately for it. This was a terrific activity for the family, and it is really eye-opening. Kids have a great time imagining what living for months at a...More

It's free with admission to the Science Center. I am not sure you can buy admission to *only* the USS Requin.

You can still l park in the Museum lot. I think it is free. You would just walk down to the river and sub is right there. It is cool - small and claustrophobic and every inch is used - I mean every inch!! You will love it.
