Tight quarters going through it. Don't go if you have a bad back or injury to legs. The holes connecting each room require a lot of movement. It really brings to life what people in a submarine have to do and live. Completed the tour of the inside in about 17 minutes.
We visited this museum using our Go Oahu card purchased from Costco. If you are using your Go Oahu card, you still need to line up at the ticket booth first to get your actual tickets. This is a self guided tour and headsets will be provided. You can press the number you see on the wall into your headset to listen to the recordings. Low ceiling inside the submarine so it might be uncomfortable for very tall people (over 6 feet). Hard to climb some stairs so it might not be a place to visit for small children.
