Visiting the Batfish was a most enjoyable and educational experience! Admission prices are very reasonable with senior and military discounts available. The museum area is small but comprehensively presents exhibits and information in ways that are not sensory overloading. The real star of this attraction...More

This is a nice little museum. The building is a little tired but the interior displays are nicely done. Outside the memorial plaques to the lost boats are sobering. I've toured other WWII subs and each time I am impressed at the sailors who manned...More
