The land that the museum is on is sold for new development. Their lease is up. Was a great place to visit but no more. The Ling submarine is still there but now just a rusting hulk.

No matter what age, you will enjoy this as much as the kids. If you are a large person, you may feel a little claustrophobic. Both girls and boys, men and women can appreciate this tour. It is really a great learning experience and family...More

Was once EXCELLENT, but no more. Closed. Years of inadequate funding has led to great neglect. Practically abandoned. VERY SAD. Used to be a must see.

If you like to see relics, stop by. The boat can't get moved out of it's river graveyard. At low tide you'll see massive rusted holes in the hull. It's definitely a surprise to see such a boat in this area.

I visited here in 2009 when it was open and had a small museum as well as entrance into the USS Ling submarine. However, even with the places being closed, the exhibits outside are worth seeing. However, the greedy grounds owner didn't renew the lease,...More

Stumbled upon this while out for a morning run. The vessel appears listing a bit near the river bank. Unable to access it directly, best photo is from nearby bridge. Grounds somewhat overgrown with weeds, various displays of Patrol Boat, German mini sub, periscope, and...More
