U.S.S. Requin — Extended Tour of the Cold War Submarine at the Carnegie Science Center

Our extended behind-the-scenes tour of the USS Requin (the cold war submarine docked at the Carnegie Science Center) begins with a look at the blueprints. Just two weeks after she arrived in Hawaii for her first tour, WWII ended.

Soon after the war, the USS Requin began serving as a training target for sonar crews. After several refits during the Cold War, she eventually came to rest in Pittsburgh as a museum exhibit in 1990.
