We visited the USS Clamagore as part of our Patriots Point tour. The sub is the least impressive of the 3 on show, and its rusting bodywork is not that good . The boat needs a lot of TLC to be restored to previous glories!!

This Memorial was moving, as it made me think of those who serve/have served in a submarine. It is an easy walk around the "buried" sub, and it is a good place for pictures. Should be a part of any Patriot's Point visit.

This is a must see part of an all day hands on history experience. A quiet and peaceful walk that took us about half an hour. The markers along the walk sparked much conversation with the kids and provided for a lot of reflection.

The submarine was amazing! Have never been inside one and this one did not disappoint! The kids absolutely loved it too!

This exhibit is a walk around a submarine prototype with real pieces (I assume). It doesn’t take very long; 30 minutes maybe. There are benches to sit and reflect. We thought it was interesting. It’s across the street from the USS Yorktown.
