Russian Attack Submarine
Berthed right next to the luxurious Queen Mary you’ll find a much smaller and more lethal little boat, The Russian Attack Submarine (562/432-0424, daily 10 a.m.–6 p.m., adults $11, children $10), code-named the Scorpion, helped the Soviet Union spy on the United States for more than 20 years during the Cold War.
Your admission includes a brief history film and the opportunity to explore the innards of the submarine.
Squeeze through the tiny spaces and learn how members of the Soviet Navy lived and worked aboard this attack submarine, which has a history that’s still shrouded in secrecy.
