The cost for a daytime visit is only $6.00 for each scout and leaders are free! You may purchase the Museum fun patch from us for an additional $1.50, but advance notice is required. Please make reservations at least two weeks prior to your visit.
Brownies can work on their Celebrating Community Legacy badge just by touring USS Cobia! USS Cobia was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986 as a memorial to the men and women who built the 28 submarines in Manitowoc during World War II and the brave men who served aboard them. (Patch not included during visit)
Step 4: Be a landmark detective
A landmark is a place that’s special or where something important happened. Some landmarks are called “memorials” because they honor people who died for an important cause. Get to know your community’s landmarks!
#2: Tour a landmark that honors the past. Visit an historic landmark, such as the place where a leader was born or an old battleground. Or visit an historical society or museum. Collect three facts you didn’t know about the place, and share them with your family
This program is held every February and November. The next available program is:
Discover the wonders of water! Learn how water connects people all over the world. Be inspired to lead your family and friends as water advocates.
