The museum itself can be covered in 30 minutes, but the real reason to go is to tour the sub. I definitely think people were smaller 50+ years ago. As part of a Cubscout trip, we were able to sleep on the sub. It was an interesting experience but not worth doing a second time as there are no bathrooms... 更多
So....not every museum has a WWII submarine. We are more familiar with Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry's German sub. This was interesting....maybe the American subs had more space....maybe it's because the one in Chicago is more blocked off.....regardless, this was a great opportunity to see what it was like during that era....difficult times, for sure.
Really enjoyed this place. Great learning experience. Especially liked the pow display. The video of the sub crew was very interesting.
If you're a WW II buff like I am you must visit this museum/WW II submarine. The museum itself is loaded with good info about the war in the Pacific and specifically about the role that the USS Silverside played in the war. I have never been on board a submarine before, this museum gives you the opportunity to walk... 更多
Big museum with lots to see and tour including the USS Silversides submarine and two other surface craft.
A lovely museum with a great story. An American captured by the Germans who escaped and fought with the Russians. The sub visit was excellent, a real slice of life in WWII.
A great tour of a USS Submarine, US coast Guard cutter, and marine museum. The museum has many artifacts for WW2. A good visit with small crowds. Both self and guided tours avail for a low price of $15.
so we didn't actually go inside the submarine, given the cost and how much time we would actually have. However, did walk around it and looked at the outdoor exhibits, which were quite interesting. Thank you to the very nice gentleman walking his dog who gave us a lot of information about the sub. Close to a very nice park... 更多
We visited the museum on our way back from the beach. We hadn't planned on going, but we saw it and it looked interesting. They have an extensive indoor history exhibit to World War II. To do this honors and with respect, you'd need to dedicate a couple of hours to meander through the two stories of exhibits and artifacts.... 更多
Spent much of our day in Muskegon here. This museum is a class act.. very, very well done. The museum has a ton of stuff to occupy young-uns and lots to interest adults. I really enjoyed the self guided tours of both the USCG Lane and USS Silversides.. especially meeting a 90+ year old WW2 Submariner visitor belowdecks who was... 更多
