Museum of a submarine in Moscow
After twenty years of impeccable combat service in 1998, the legendary diesel submarine called "Novosibirsk Komsomol member" was decommissioned from the Russian Navy and turned into a museum. After 8 years, it was re-equipped and installed on the shore of the Khimsky reservoir in the capital of our country. Now there is a submarine museum (in Moscow), which is part of the museum-memorial complex of the history of the navy of Russia.
Inside the boat, the interior was slightly modernized: the upper deck, instead of the hatches through which the submariners were seated, was fitted with doors for the convenience of museum visitors. The premises of the boat for inspection were also expanded. In fact, in the submarine it was very close, the military moved through the hatches, which had to be battered after moving from compartment to compartment. Each hatch has a table in which the symbols of the symbolic signals for tapping are indicated, they are necessary for communication between submariners.
The submarine museum in Moscow invites you for a tour, the maximum number of tourists is 15 people. For these purposes, the compartments are open: battery, diesel, torpedo, residential, aft and officer cabins. The museum-boat "Novosibirsk Komsomolets" offers to look into the torpedo compartment, where there are real torpedoes with mines and diving suits.

Showroom offers a look at the personal belongings of the crew.
Submarines do not have portholes, and the movement depends on navigation, which is an important control element and the life of the ship depends on it.

The museum was opened in March 2010. He became immediately very popular, especially among boys. The submarine museum is located opposite the Marine Corps of Peter the Great in St. Petersburg on the Lieutenant Schmidt Embankment. The submarine of the C-189 series was manufactured at the Baltic Shipyard in 1955. The boat is equipped with six vehicles for torpedoes and is able to descend to a depth of 200 meters. This type of ships easily endured numerous combat battles. The USA and Germany highly appreciated the quality of such boats. During the years of its combat service, the boat has furrowed the blue of the Atlantic, the Arctic Ocean, the Baltic Sea and the Neva River.
After 35 years of service, it fell into disrepair and sank in Kronstadt in 1998. In 2000, submariner veterans attempted to take the initiative to raise it from the bottom and make a museum out of a submarine, but it was not crowned with lack of money. It was only five years later that the lift operation could be completed. At the Kanonersky ship repair plant it was repaired, and with the help of military specialists they supplied new equipment. Today, the boat restored the original look.
Five years later, with the charitable assistance of a submariner A. Artyushin, the submarine was turned into a museum and installed on the Lieutenant Schmidt embankment. In the Submariners Seamen Club there is information that the boat was restored at his expense. The submarine received a second birth, only now as a museum.
The crew of the submarine today consists of submariner veterans. They monitor the museum, maintaining proper order, and conduct excursions.
"Submarine" in St. Petersburg - the museum number three in a row, after the cruiser "Aurora" and the icebreaker "Krasin".
How to get to the museum?
Getting into a submarine is not easy, as it is moored to a pier belonging to the border guard service. Here foreign cruise ships often moor. A free passage is obtained when there is one airliner, but if two come in, the passage becomes blocked. In the days when there is no influx of foreign tourists, the boat can be approached easily. Just be careful: going down into the compartments, you can get a lot of bruises.
"Submarine" in St. Petersburg - a museum to get ideas about military service in the navy. Having been in it, you will learn firsthand what it means to be a submariner. If you go further along the coast, then through the three hundred meters you will see the icebreaker "Krasin". It will be an exciting walk along the promenade.
