My father little brother and myself were driving back from boston from a Red Sox Game and decided since we were going up Route 1 anyway to stop bye and see the USS Albacore.  She is a small little sub one of the first actually.  You walk into a small reception building and buy a ticket not really that expensive and then you enter the museum.  Looking around you learn alot about all different kinds of sumbmarines and stuff.  There are all sorts of glass cases with different bits of history behind them you really can appreciate how long it must have taken for this museum to get all this wonder full stuff.  Once you go out side there she is the Albacore.  She isnt very big and not what you expect of a submarine because  right now I know alot of people are imagining that one scene in Red October where the Sub comes flying out of the water.  She isnt that sub compared to that she is a bath toy.  But its intersting to see where they started and where they are now and thats exactly what this sub shows you.  You can walk throught the whole thing and there isnt alot thats closed off.  It was a fun waste of time really because thats all we were doing since we didnt have anywhere to be.
