Aboard The USS Requin
The USS Requin will be open for tours again on Saturday after being closed for over two months for repairs. The submarine was commissioned in April of 1945 in the closing days of World War II. This year marks the 70th anniversary since it began its service and the 25th year since it arrived at the Carnegie Science Center in 1990. We'll take a tour with submarine coordinator Maria Renzelli.
