    We love this place, my husband, myself, my 3 and 7 year old. We actually got to tour the inside of a submarine, that was my fave part.

    The Nautilus is a wonderful look back in time and at how our men lived beneath the waves.

    Don't turn into the base by mistake. They are very nice if you do. If you have never been on an old nuclear sub then don't pass this by. Leave a donation.

    Do not touch anything on the second floor in the library without inquiring ahead of time. Museum and The Nautilus meticulously well-kept.
