My 7 year old son loves military history and found this submarine amazing! We loved the guns on deck and being able to go below to imagine what life would be on board. Great trip - fun for the whole family and educational too.

The submarine is the real thing. You get to go into the sub and see how it was like under water. The price is really reasonable and it is right downtown Cleveland. You can walk their from the Rock-n-Roll Hall or the Science museum. It is next to the Browns stadium and obviuosly on the waterfront. It is an interesting visit and not just a Disney reproduction -- it's the real thing.

The submarine is in dock at the confluence of the three rivers which meet in Cleveland. Down below decks,one can get an idea of what life i like on board a small submarine. A guide is available to tell you about 'hot bunks' and the galley gives an idea on the cooking facilities and food available on a long sea voyage. Looking through the periscope and seeing the torpedo tube loading bays was most interesting.

I'm anticipating another Halloween experience on USS Cod submarine permanently docked on downtown Cleveland's North Coast Harbor (Lake Erie). As I did last year, I'm taking some neighbors so they, too, can participate in this very unusual Halloween event while, at the same time, learning about Cod and other submarines that helped win WWII. Last year inside the sub, we had guided tours by former sub sailors, spooky red lighting, 1940s music and a Tokyo Rose raid recording. Time and dates for this year's event are on the Cleveland Plain Dealer's online website. Just in case, from 6:30 - 9:30, Friday, Saturday evenings, Oct. 25 & 26. Visitors are told to wear the kind of shoes for the vertical steel ladders.

To go back in time into a WWII submarine is quite an experience. I brought with me an engineer who loves WWII history and he was absolutely in love. We could have been in there for the whole day if I didn't move him along. It was a special commemorative day when we were there and there were volunteers and veterans around to talk to us. One was even practicing his Morse Code. Highly recommended.
