As part of Pearl Harbor's displays, it includes the audio headset for guiding you through the submarine. My wife is a little claustrophobic, but had no problems with the tight quarters knowing that it was not submerged. Very interesting. The museum portion that is just off of the ship is alright. It was part of a larger tour for us.

I recommend purchasing your tickets ahead of time online. The self guided tour is great as it explains all of the parts of the sub.

You can walk from stern to bow inside the ship and see all of the stations. Another good history spot. Plus the surrounding displays are great as well. There is a very nice memorial to the sailors who died on the WWII submarines.

As long as you're not claustrophobic, and it can also be an issue if you're a 'generous' build... Those hatches between sections of the hull are small... It's an awesome journey though, imagining those sailors underwater in these things raises some serious thoughts.

We were touring the Arizona memorial and the USS Missouri and didn't remember the sub from when we were here years and years ago but it was quite a fun tour. The audio tour features both a "kid" version and "adult" version. Truth be told...I did the kid version the whole way because it was more fun. :) Really good audio tour and really interesting being inside the sub. So much history and a really excellent museum. Our 9 year old loved it.
