Submariners will appreciate the battle flags, plaques, photos, news articles, and models. Non-submariners will learn about the history of the silent service. Many items were removed due to the hurricanes; however, the items will be restored soon.

Much work has been done to set up the great display of Submarine Historical Items. You can enjoy the vast amount of Submarine items found here. It is a good place to take children to introduce them to Submarine History. Great for everyone!

Must have been some special even because there is never a problem with parking in that area. Don't know what the problem could have been that day.
