Overnight Program Timeline
Groups will get a behind-the-scenes look at USS Cobia, sound the dive alarm, learn about life on a submarine, and sleep on the World War II-era vessel.
The Overnight Program costs $44 per person for both youth and adults.
Programming runs from 7:30 PM arrival until about 11:00 PM. Exclusive gallery admission is included for the following day.
7 Steps to Overnight Program
Step 1: Find a night
Any group can join an available night. Participants must be at least 6 years old and the group must provide chaperones.
Note: Unless specified as a Family Overnight (marked as “FON”), it is meant for large groups such as Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, church groups, history clubs, family reunions or other large groups. Family Overnights are geared towards smaller groups or individuals.
Step 2: Fill Out a Reservation Request Form
Step 3: 2 Weeks After Confirming Reservation
Complete the Reply Form within two weeks after making your reservation. The $200 deposit will hold your group’s spot and will be put towards your final payment.
The amount of participants that you reserve with at this point is what you are financially responsible for. If you wish to change this number without being penalized, you must confirm, in writing, any attendance changes with the Overnight Coordinator 45 days before your Overnight. See Step 4 for more details.
Step 4: 45 days before your overnight
Your final attendance numbers must be confirmed on this date. You are financially responsible for the number of attendees booked. No refunds are given.
All groups must submit the Museum’s Letter of Acknowledgement prior to arriving.
This sample roster is available for you to help plan your Overnight.
Step 5: Two weeks before your arrival
Step 6: Arrival
Overnight groups should plan to arrive at the Museum at 7:30 PM.
Leaders enter the blue USS COBIA CREW PASSAGE door at the base of the right/west ramp near the main doors. Please have Waivers signed by all attending youth and adults and in the order in which they appear on the roster. Families may sign on the same form.
The Museum’s Medical Form should be filled out as needed.
Remaining balances must be paid upon arrival.
For any last minute questions on the night-of, the Overnight desk phone is 920-684-0218 x 122.
Step 7: The Following Morning
The Museum is open to your group the morning following the overnight. Before you explore the Museum and store, all gear must be in your vehicles.
Closing ceremonies are at 8:00 AM and attendance is required of all participants. After that, groups are free to spend as much time in the Museum as desired.
Please be courteous and respectful in the galleries. Interactive spaces, like the Waterways Room, should be cleaned up after use.
