See the H.L. Hunley Confederate submarine

One attraction you definately don’t want to miss when you visit Charleston is the Confederate submarine, the H.L. Hunley.

It is on display, in a tank, at the Warren Lasch Conservation Center just a few miles outside of Charleston.

Tours are for 20 minutes (where the Hunley is actually displayed) but you can take as much time as you want outside the Hunley exhibit area. Tours are available only on Saturdays and Sundays. Check the Friends of the Hunley web site for up-to-date information.

You can NOT take pictures of the actual submarine in the holding tank. There is a part of a replica in the common exhibit area where you can take pictures though.

This is a MUST SEE stop if you’re an enthusiast of the Civil War or of Southern maritime history.
