Military history buffs can go ?deeper? with their knowledge when they visit the most storied and decorated World War II submarine: the USS Bowfin.
Credited for sinking 16 Japanese vessels totaling 67,822 tons, this submarine was a naval force that the United States leaned on during the critical periods of World War II. Launched during the first anniversary of the Pearl Harbor attack, this submarine patrolled the Pacific for years before retiring in 1971 for good.
Located at the Pearl Harbor Memorial Park, this submarine-turned-museum is walking distance away from another World War II memorial, the USS Arizona.
The park?s museum features artifacts about submarines. It also exhibits the history of the United States Submarine Service, including weapons, models, photographs and other memorabilia. The museum is open to the public all days of the week.
