Truly fascinating (as long as you don't suffer from claustrophobia). Happy to submit photos if so required.

The submarine itself is amazing - it's a wonderful experience to walk through and admire the efficiency and mechanical marvel of everything going on in such a limited (yet also massive) space. I would only warn people with mobility issues or any concerns about small spaces to think twice about entering the submarine as you will need to move through... More

If you have never been on a submarine, now is you chance. You get a pre-recorded carry around (just watch for the numbers) that informs of what you are looking at. Loved it.

We took this as an additional tour to the main Arizona memorial and it was very interesting. The audio tour of the sub is very good and the museum has some great exhibits. A good addition to the main tour and worth the few extra dollars.

This is museum and submarine areally located at Pearl Harbour. It was fun getting to go inside the sub to see how the men lived. It was interesting that some of their bunks were under a torpedo! The brass instruments were amazing and it was a lot of fun. The museum is interesting too and had a lot of information.... More

Looking at the outside I should have known what was inside. If you like old subs and think that's cool then you will enjoy this place. If you want to gamble and see hey maybe it might be worth it, trust me save your money it's not worth it.

Crawling around in all these small spaces gives you an idea of how men on a submarine spend there time. Very interesting with the guided headset tour that is included.

Interesting but not for the larger people, I'm 6'3" with knee replacements couldn't do the small passage ways below deck. Now I know why I was in the Army.

a fascinating opportunity to see what life was like back in WW2 aboard a US submarine. If you are the proud owner of a GoPro camera, then make sure to bring it as the confined spaces are perfect for filming using the ultra wide lens of the Go~Pro
