Following a month of dry dock maintenance work, the USS Bowfin has returned to the Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum at Pearl Harbor, and tours will reopen today.
“We are very excited for the return of the USS Bowfin to our campus and look forward to reopening her to the public,” said museum executive director Chuck Merkel in a press release. “The inspections and repairs that were completed are essential to ensure the submarine remains safe and suitable for public display and will allow the Bowfin to tell her story far into the future,” Merkel said.
The Bowfin, a fleet attack submarine that fought in the Pacific during World War II, last underwent repair work was in 2004.
