USS Bowfin Submarine Museum And Park, Honolulu Reviews
A great place to see history. Audiotours are provided and very informative. Being able to walk through a submarine really brought the ideas home to my kids. If you are 6' or taller, watch your head when below decks!! When you are at the aft, you can look across Pearl Harbor and see the USS Arizona Memorial and the USS Missouri.
Really interesting even if you seen other submarines. The brass is highly polished and it looks great. A nice piece of history
My boyfriend and I we able to purchase the Groupon right at the visitor's center and go on the tour immediately! I initially didn't think we would go on the tour, but once we saw the ship I knew that I wanted to see the inside of the submarine. Very cramped once on the boat and it was a little hot we when we took the tour, but you can't expect the sub to be cool. We also received headsets that explained each area of the ship as you were walking through it. Very interesting and don't regret going!
Not very often you get to have a look inside a submarine. Let's you see the conditions that these brave men had to live in for long periods of time under war conditions. Truly remarkable. Staff were friendly at the shop and full of information.
you should go there if you visit pearl harbor because you can explore the uss bowfin at the inside - very cool !
