USS Cod Submarine Memorial, Cleveland

4.8
#4 of 11 in Historic Sites in Cleveland
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.

  • Really fun! Went with a group and we all enjoyed the tour! It felt very much like being in an authentic WW2 submarine, it even took so climbing and crawling to get through it! Very friendly employees there, and free parking (about the only thing near downtown that has that)!
  • This was awesome, a real peice of history on display. A co worker and I traveling from Ontario Canada to Akron had a couple hours free and randomly picked this out of everything else Cleveland had to offer. Free parking right on the lake. You do have to climb in and out of, there isn't stairs its ladders and climbing through doorways. If I have the opportunity to take someone new there I will.
