Description

The USS Batfish Submarine & Military Museum is one of Muskogee's most unique attractions. An actual World War II submarine, the Batfish sank three enemy submarines and eleven other enemy vessels during her tenure in battle. As a result of this record, the Batfish and her crew were highly decorated with nine Battle Stars, one Navy Cross, four Silver Stars, and ten Bronze Stars. Visitors can tour the inside of the submarine, including the torpedo room and crew cabins. In the park you will find an army tank, cannons, and missiles, and military memorabilia for view. There is also a Walk of Honor ...

There is also a Walk of Honor that is a tribute to all veterans. The Batfish hosts special ceremonies during Veterans' Day, and May 5th of each year that brings the U.S.S. Batfish survivors together for a reunion.

Brandi, the submarine was transported to its current location via the Arkansas River at the Port of Muskogee. You can read about its journey by clicking the orange website button at the top of this page and selecting 'Post-War History.' Best wishes and thank you for using TravelOK.com!


From Brandi LoGiudice on 12/10/14

If you go ask how a sub got to a inland state with no water near!


From Jon on 03/03/14

We visited the museum in February of 2013. Poorly run and the exhibits were in very poor shape. The sub itself is rusting away. A very dissappointing way to honor our veterans.
