The museum is a little small but is a great time. There is a lot of information on how submarines began and what explorers did. There are some interactive sets for the kids and videos for those of us who don’t like to read everything. Fun for the whole family!!

Good museum ... not very large, so doesn't touch on all areas of interest. Traces the history of submarines and submarine warfare. Development of torpedoes is a major topic--quite informative for those interested. Outside are a couple of deep-sea research submersibles. And admission is free. All on one level (now).

I have a slightly biased view as a former submariner, however, it pays a good deal of attention to the history of this type of warfare that normally goes unmentioned. One of the opening exhibits pays ommage to the Thresher incident. For kids/learning, they have a portion of the exhibit that goes over a lot of the science behind submarines. There is also a control room, a large variety of torpedoes used over the years, an area for kids to read books and play dress up. The marine mammal exhibit is an interesting look at their use in the Puget Sound that is a very different take from what you get in an aquarium. Very excited for the future NR-1 control room exhibit.

Nice staff and educational fun. The displays change so you can go every few months and experience something new. The kids love it and it is free so on rainy days with nothing to do this is on the list!

This is a free museum that we took all too long to visit. It would be a great place to bring kids as they have something for everyone including "hands on" exhibits. The staff are volunteers and happy to answer any questions.
