Dive!  Dive!  Dive!  U.S. Navy Submarines

Submarines have played an important role in U.S. defense policy for more than 200 years. They attack, perform rescue and recovery missions, collect scientific data, and gather intelligence for strategic nuclear deterrence.

In our simulated submarine combat center, visitors learn about the fundamentals of submarine technology through interactive displays. The submarine room also traces the development and history of American submarines.

Interesting artifacts in the submarine exhibit include:
