Must stop

I have toured many navy ships and this is one of the best. The boat is in great shape for her age and is a great way to go back in time.

Very nice ww2 restored submarine. I was only able to see the sub from the ouside and was unable to board when I went to see it. Not much else to do there.

The U.S.S. Cod is a World War 2 era sub that had distinguished service right up until the the 70's. It is well maintained and very original. Visitors have to use the same ladders and hatches used by the crew. I truly liked the tour and was lucky enough to be behind a former crewman who was visiting and giving... More

Very interesting and very historic - from WWII. And you can go thru the sub and see just how close the quarters were. If you aren't claustrophobic, visit the COD.

Near the Science Museum, Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and other attractions it is an interesting stop....especially if you are a naval history buff.

Being from Quebec, I have never - and probably never will - be aboard an actual submarine. A submarine, y'all! What an exciting experience, both from a historical and an adventure perspective. You even get to reenact living in the actual sub, making it even more memorable. I highly recommend!

Not for everyone, tight spaces, if you enjoy military circa 1945 worth a look. It does establish the fact that early submariners were a very tough breed...one interesting fact, due to a treaty with Canada, the USS Cod has no propeller.

A most noteworthy craft that has been excellently restored! It seems they only lost one man to an accident through the war in the pacific, but the sub took a tool on Japanese shipping. Very good attention to detail through the sub, many “audio experience” displays that help to tell the story of shipboard life on a submarine of this... More

This is a great stop if you have an hour or so, to really get to explore the submarine. It's amazing how many men stayed in the sub at one time. There is a lot to explore, and you get to climb down into it the same way they did. So, be prepared for some steep ladders. I wouldn't take... More
