San Francisco is home to one of the “most popular historic vessels in the country”; it is a giant WWII submarine that sank six Japanese ships. Now, it’s a living museum where you and your children can marvel at this immense symbol of military brawniness. Submarines are inherently fascinating to kids, and any children learning about World War II in history class should definitely see the USS Pampanito for a well-rounded lesson in the past.
