Vistors can go on aboard and explore below deck to imagine what life must have been like her USS Bowfin's 80 man crew during war. Adjacent museum explores the intriguing history of submarines, both past and present. New exhibits include a Poseidon C-3 missile which allows visitors to examine the inner workings of a missile.
