Default Re: Visiting the first of its kind - The USS Nautilus @ Groton Submarine Museum (Connecticut, USA)

If there is one thing that we must learn from the Americans is the desire to take pride in their history. Multiple such 'museums' dedicated to history and we are letting our 'historical' boats, planes rot1 (Sorry for the rant).

I had the chance to visit a similar museum in Genova, Italy (On my honeymoon!). They have a floating Sub there. Sadly, I wasn't able to get in as they had some repairs happening for an hour or so and I had to head back to our waiting cruise.

I have however visited some museums in the US and they take a lot of pride in it. Well kept exhibits, knowledgeable teams around to answer questions.
