Spend the night aboard OMSI’s USS Blueback, a retired U.S. Navy submarine. Experience what it’s like to live on a submarine, explore the torpedo room, peer through a periscope and sleep in the crew’s quarters. Learn about density and buoyancy as you explore how submarines are designed to dive and surface. Submarine Camp-Ins include snack and continental breakfast, planetarium show and museum admission the following day.
