USS Silversides Museum

Plan Your Visit to the
USS Silversides Submarine Museum

The USS Silversides Submarine Museum is located near the Lake Michigan lakeshore in Muskegon, MI. Our museum allows you to immerse yourself in WWII history, with a wide variety of permanent and temporary exhibits on display. While you’re here, you can tour a U.S. Coast Guard cutter as well as our namesake, the USS Silversides Gato-class submarine.


We are located west of downtown Muskegon, just south of the Muskegon Lake channel.
