The USS Albacore was a research submarine, designed by the Navy to test experimental features still used in modern submarines. Today Albacore has been preserved and opened to the public at Albacore Park.

Tours through Albacore are self-guided. As you walk through the ship, a series of audio stations highlight Albacore's unique features. Recordings by former crew members tell something of the daily life aboard the sub.
