The Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum campus recently underwent an extensive renovation to better honor the history of the U. S. Navy’s Submarine Force. The campus is also the USS Bowfin (SS-287) home, a fleet submarine that was launched on December 7, 1942, and nicknamed “Pearl Harbor Avenger.” Bowfin made nine war patrols in the Pacific Ocean during World War II. She opened to the public at Pearl Harbor in 1981 and proudly represented the 288 U.S. submarines that served in the Pacific during WWII.

Tour the Bowfin and learn what it was like for her crew of 80 men to
serve onboard. All admissions include an audio headset with content onboard Bowfin in the museum and select outdoor artifacts. Learn and be inspired by the proud past and bright future of the U. S. Navy’s “Silent Service” - from
WWII, the Cold War, and today and into the future in our museum. The museum includes many interactive exhibits to understand better what it was like to serve on submarines. Our campus also includes several outdoor artifacts, a gift shop, a comfort station, a shaded lanai (patio), a food truck, and several other concessions.

Please Note:
To expand our reach and impact, USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park is currently undergoing a major expansion and renovation project, which involves the temporary closure of the museum and certain exhibits and parts of the park. The USS Bowfin itself remains open during our improvement project. The gift shop, food service, all concessions, and lanai will remain open as well. Please visit our social media channels for the latest updates on progress in our museum and park!
