Mission Statement: USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park's mission is to restore and preserve the World War II submarine USS Bowfin (SS-287), and submarine-related artifacts on our grounds and in the Museum. Bowfin Park's parent organization, the Pacific Fleet Submarine Memorial Association (PFSMA), is a non-profit group that receives no state or federal funding.
A good site for an introduction to submarine history. Includes accounts of an American Revolutionary era model through to modern nuclear submarines. A QuickTime virtual tour of the Bowfin takes one inside the various compartments and holds. A history of the ship's activities during World War II beginning with its launch just a week after the attack on Pearl Harbor is also recounted. A large number of links to other submarine and naval sites of interest are compiled.
