“Just the navy feel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 December 2013

Who would have thought you could actually walk through the interior of an old navy sub. And in the middle of the city no less.
For the most part the sub is still intact so you can walk around pushing and pulling on just about everything. While at the same time getting to know what it felt like being in a small space under water trying to protect your country.
It was obviously cramped for the poor souls who had to bear it doing their civil duty, the sub even on land was hot and humid but it was a nice experience to be able to say I was in a sub.
Just outside are a few stalls where you can get a cool drink and some snacks. There is also a video room with a movie about the sub.
Nice way to pass an hour of the day.

“old submarine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2013

See the old submarine during the world war II. Its a great museum basically for those of never enter to the submarine before and feel the atmosphere. Even though some of the interior part has already change and broken, but you still can see the big picture of inside the submarine and the history off course.

“Awesome and cheap!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

If you are interested in this sort of thing, my wife and I thought this museum was the coolest attraction in Surabaya. Checking out an old sub was fun. you get to go inside. At 10k rupiah, it's very cheap as well.

A replica of the real Pasapati submarine where you can have a real feel of how a submarine looks like inside. A good place for everyone.
