Archaeology Tour · Monument
The once-active World War II submarine USS Cod Submarine Memorial honors the many soldiers who lost their lives in the line of duty in the United States Navy Submarine Force. This particular submarine launched in 1943 and fought over half a dozen significant battles during World War II. The ship's real claim to fame came in 1945, when it rescued 56 Dutch sailors from a stuck submarine, performing the only international submarine-to-submarine rescue in history. Climb aboard the wartime boat to get a taste for the cramped living spaces experienced by the many men who made their home aboard. Ex-submariners man the vessel for visitors, giving the experience a very personal touch. Plan my day in Cleveland using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

  • Worth your time and money. Recommend learning some of the history before taking the tour to gain some appreciation for the role the vessel played in WWII and Korea. They have two YouTube videos on their website that are very well done. 👍 Especially amazing if timed with the Cleveland air show!
  • Wish I could give a review on this. All I can say is it's cool to look at as you walk by. At $15 a person for a 10 minute tour I will have to pass. I would recommend they dropped the price to $5 and get people to come in.
