Queen Mary liner,


Long Beach

bay, there is the B-427 "Scorpion" submarine, project 641. This submarine was enrolled in the list of Soviet Navy ships in the early 1970s. After more than 20 years of service, the submarine was sold to Australia, and then it was bought by the Americans, who turned it into a museum. The atmosphere of those times has been preserved inside. The place is small and tight. There was no guide, so the visitors descended alone. A taped voice with a terrible accent, reproduced scenes in each compartment.
