Climb down into the narrow passageways of the USS Nautilus and imagine a submerged voyage to the North Pole aboard this record-shattering, Connecticut-built vessel. Self-guided audio tours of the world’s first nuclear-powered submarine—which made science-nonfiction headlines by journeying 20,000 leagues under the sea—are the highlight of visiting this U.S. Navy museum.
