Fodor's Review

Get an intriguing, if mildly claustrophobic, glimpse into life on a submarine during World War II on this small, 80-man sub, which sank six Japanese warships and damaged four others. There's not much in the way of interpretive signs, so opt for the audio tour to learn about what you're seeing.
