Join the Intrepid Museum’s Curator of History and Collections Jessica Williams as she takes you on a live tour of a once top-secret nuclear missile submarine!

The Intrepid Museum is home to the submarine Growler, the only nuclear missile submarine open to the public in the United States. In the early 1960s, Growler lurked in frigid waters off the coast of Russia, while the crew waited for the command to launch its devastating weapons.

This live one-hour online experience will give you an in-depth tour of Growler. You will see the submarine’s control center, living spaces and top-secret missile center. Joining virtually will be Former Crew Members, who served on board Growler. You will hear about day-to-day life on the submarine, as well as moments of hardship and humor. Come with your questions!
