about us
Scotland's only submarine museum and education centre. Based in Helensburgh, the home of the UK's Submarine fleet.

The centre provides visitors with information about submarines and how they work. The centre uses immersive video and audio to provide learning experiences about the exploits of the submarine service and the people involved. 

Noticeboard

Hi Folks. Please be advised the Submarine Centre is now closed to the public until the 3rd of December so some busy little elves can prepare the place for a very special visitor, who will be taking up residence for the month of December. We will be reopening on Saturday 3rd of December, where children of all ages will be able to visit Santa in his underwater grotto in the small subsea village of Coral Cove. HO HO HO. More Christmassy info to follow. It's going to be FAB!
