INSIDE THE GROWLER MISSILE SUBMARINE
The Intrepid Museum will present a free virtual tour of the Growler submarine on Thursday, December 8 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. ET. In this virtual event, the Intrepid Museum’s History and Collections Curator Jessica Williams will take the public on a live tour of a once top secret nuclear missile submarine!
The Intrepid Museum is home to the Growler submarine, the only missile submarine open to the public in the United States. In the early 1960s, Growler lurked in the freezing waters off the coast of Russia, while the crew awaited command to unleash their devastating weapons.
This one-hour live online experience will provide an in-depth tour of Growler.
Attendees will see the submarine’s control center, living areas, and top-secret missile center. Joining virtually will be former Growler crew members, David Bishop, a third-class torpedo boat, and Donald Bosetti, a second-class engineer. They will share stories of daily life on the submarine as well as moments of hardship and humor.
