Family Overnights

Family Overnights are a Blast!

Not part of an organized group?  The Museum also offers a few Family Overnights each year. On these nights, individuals or families not part of an organized group can participate in our Overnight Program. We can accommodate up to 55 individuals on board the submarine for our family overnights.

The overnight adventure begins at 7:30 PM on the dates listed below and conclude the following morning.  Cost is $44.00 per person. Fee includes your accommodations aboard a WWII submarine, educational activities, and your museum admission the following day.  Participants will need to bring their own bedding.  We do not provide food or refreshments.  The submarine is fully heated and air conditioned.  Souvenirs are available for purchase at an additional cost.  Please see our souvenir page for additional information.

We are looking to create some banners for the Roof Deck railing to be seen from across the river. So thinking in the ballpark of 3 feet tall by 20 feet wide. We are looking for a quote on 3 different ones, that should be able to stand up to all 4 seasons, some short term, some year round. What information do you need from me to generate a quote?

Thank you for your time.


Family Overnights for 2019 are available for booking, check these dates on our Availability Calendar to see how may spots are left on each.
