USS COD Submarine Memorial Reviews & Ratings
Worth your time and money. Recommend learning some of the history before taking the tour to gain some appreciation for the role the vessel played in WWII and Korea. They have two YouTube videos on their website that are very well done. 👍 Especially amazing if timed with the Cleveland air show!
I have been to the USS Cod multiple times with friends and family over the years. It is always a pleasure to go through it. You can view the Cod from the outside or pay admission to enter the grounds and enter the submarine. The tour starts at the bow hatch and takes you through to the stern. There are audio tour stations in the various main rooms. The bow hatch has a short flight of steps to the entrance then you need to turn to take the ladder down. The stern hatch is a straight ladder down and may be easier for some people. The sub is in it's original condition, built for fit military men. My wife and I in our 50's were still able to negotiate the passage. The best way to go from room to room is to grab the bar above the hatch or hatch top, put your legs up and swing through. It is amazing our men fought in these conditions. We spent well over an hour on the grounds and in the sub. For those of you who rushed through in 10 minutes, you missed much. Some people think the admission is steep. This is not a common roadside museum. It is a naval vessel afloat in water which takes a lot of money to maintain. It is not government funded. For those who like military souvenirs, the souvenir shop had a good selection of T shirts, plus a photo history book of the USS Cod, mugs, and other items.
Wish I could give a review on this. All I can say is it's cool to look at as you walk by. At $15 a person for a 10 minute tour I will have to pass. I would recommend they dropped the price to $5 and get people to come in.
Must climb metal ladders to get in and out. It was hard on my knees but really worth it. No restrooms here but they do have outdoor chemical porta potties if you are desperate. Automated audio didn't work in most compartments and there was no live tour available on Sunday when we were there. Still, we were happy to pay the $10 senior fee. It was amazing.
Completely amazing! Definitely an experience anyone would enjoy, no matter the age. It's pretty unbelievable how our Navy Seamen did what they did in these submarines!
