USS Pampanito (SS-383) is a World War II Balao class Fleet submarine museum and memorial, open for visitors daily at San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf.
Pampanito made six patrols in the Pacific during World War II during which she sank six Imperial Japanese ships and damaged four others.  This is one of the most popular historic vessels in the country. 

Visit this floating museum, with its original sleeping quarters, kitchen, dining room, and office open to the public. Walking through the living areas it’s possible to get a true sense of the cramped quarters soldiers endured at sea for months at a time. The ship’s museum (as a part of the larger San Francisco Maritime National Park Association) gives a glimpse into a unique time in naval history. Much of the submarine has been restored to its original working condition, including its torpedo tube, engine room, and periscope. The National Historic Landmark is one of the most visited historic vessels in the United States.

Pampanito visits are open daily and include an audio tour.
