    Great exhibit of not just the USS Bowfin, but of the history of the USN Submarine Service. There are many displays showing the mechanical as well as the human side of the story, some of which are hands-on.
    However, expect to get kicked out early, despite the posted closing time of 5:00. The museum closed 30 minutes early, and the gift shop 45 minutes early. I guess that's what they mean by "aloha time".

    Like the USS Arizona, this is a really cool opportunity to walk through a genuine military vessel. Takes about 20 minutes altogether. By its nature the sub is too crowded to permit a tour guide inside, but a guide outside is available for questions.

    It is hot and cramped, but it is a WW2 era submarine. What do you expect?? Great tour!

    Nice tour, but seriously hot inside the Sub. If you're used to standing and moving in hot, humidity you should be fine. I was feeling so icky and sticky I didn't even finish the audio tour.
