To get to this attraction, you must drive through a shady part of town. It is located in a warehouse near the water. There are very few signs to show the way to the museum. BUT, the tour is very fascinating, so it's worth finding it. A tour guide takes you into a room where parts of the Hunley are displayed (in water for preservation). Then, you climb about 15 steps to a viewing platform. You are able to look down into a tank and see the Hunley itself. The guide tells facts about the submarine and the people who were on it. Then, you come down from the platform and they tell more history and have pictures showing crews working on the clean-up of the submarine. Finally you get to see objects found on the submarine - a coin, a diamond ring, and a diamond broach. Outside around the gift shop area is a replica of the size of the Hunley. You can sit inside to get a feel for what a small space the men were confined. Overall, a very historical attraction.
