Interesting to see what these old submarines looked like on the inside and how the marines had to live while on mission. Hard to believe really but worth a look - it's very cheap to to do

We visited early in the morning. There were no lines, the entrance fee is very low. If you don't read Russian it will take you 15-20 minutes since all information is in Russian only. Some parts of the sub interior is removed and replaced with a museum of sorts so if you are looking for a complete authentic sub this... More

As it is only 100 Roubles to get in well worth the time (and it was warm inside on a winter’s day!). As expected, there is no English information but plenty of well laid out displays in the first part and an opportunity to see the cramped conditions at the back.

Visiting this submarine was a pleasant surprise. The inside kept the ambience from the past. It is also very cheap to visit this museum.

During the heaviest snowstorm, we decided to visit this submarine. The ticket is not so expensive, but it's a rather small museum. We were the only ones in the submarine, so we had time to look around. If you speak some Russian, you will enjoy the first part of the museum, but it can be interesting for non-speakers, too. And...

100 Roubles to get in, so cheap as you like. The only downside if any was there was no information in English, but then I guess it's the same as English museums not having lists of foreign languages. Anyway, it's worth a look to see just how small and cramped these people had to live with.

Actual World War II soviet submarine. After entering the submarine the first part has been turned into a museum detailing the history of the submarine. The second part of the submarine has been left as it was, fascinating to walk through and highlighting the cramped quarters the seamen had to put up with. Definitely recommended.

If you have ever wanted to experience claustrophobia this is the place for you. The first half if the submarine is sort of a war memorial, but the send half lets you see the complex cramped quarters of a World War II submarine. It is hard to imagine the heat, humidity and noise that sailors would have had to endure... More

We visited this S-56 with our kids. It was the first time for everyone of us to be inside a submarine! The kids loved it! At the end of the museum they sell souvenirs. We bought a military hat, but when we went out and someone approached us selling one almost the same hat at half price!

I don't think there are so many places in the world where you can visit a submarine so definitely do it once in Vladivostok
