Here at the USS Silversides Submarine Museum, our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of our visitors and staff. Due to the spreading of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we are going to be postponing all future lectures and rescheduling them once it is safe to do so.

Thank you for your understanding. We will keep you all posted when the lectures are rescheduled.

The Tuesday lunch time on site lectures will not be finishing in the theater. To view the lecture from home visit their website at www.worldmichigan.org/greatdecisions2020.
Thank you for joining us!

Come see our newest exhibit,

  Those Who Cared For Those Who Served

 Please join us as we open the USS Silversides Submarine Museums newest Exhibit — “Those Who Cared For Those Who Served.”

Military service can be a stressful time for all involved. The USS Silversides will honor those Corpsman, Chaplains and the Medical Services in all branches of the military who provided support to those served.  This is a group which often goes unrecognized.  It is our pleasure to highlight those who cared for those who served.
