Visit the USS Pampanito with Go City®

  • With us, there are no entry fees on the day – all you've got to do is show your pass.
  • Includes general admission and access to permanent exhibitions.
  • A headset with prerecorded audio information about the vessel is available.
  • Your pass gives you access to many more attractions in San Francisco, so don't forget to check them out.

Given National Historic Landmark status, this vessel has a rich history ready to be explored and is currently being restored to late summer 1945, to represent the height of WWII submarine development.

As part of your tour, you’ll get a headset with a pre-recorded audio information. Hop on board the vessel and explore the various compartments and rooms. From the living quarters to the torpedoes, you can get a feel for what life aboard the USS Pampanito was like for all of those who served aboard her and similar vessels. As part of the restoration, the Maritime Park Association has scoured the country in search of missing equipment and spare parts. Don’t forget to check out the onboard equipment that has been restored to working order.

The vessel hosts a number of events throughout the year including Pampanito‘s educational day and overnight programs for children to immerse themselves in life on the Pampanito.

USS Pampanito facts

  • Museum ships are the only museum artifacts that are regularly stored in corrosive saltwater. This means that every seven years Pampanito must be dry-docked in order to inspect, paint and complete vital repairs to her hull.
  • The vessel made six patrols in the Pacific during World War II. She sank six Imperial Japanese ships and damaged four others.

Go City is a better way to sightsee. Your pass includes USS Pampanito tickets, plus admission to dozens of top San Francisco attractions for one money-saving price.
