USS Bowfin Submarine Museum & Park is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and we do not receive any funding from the Navy or the U.S. government. In 1986 we were designated a National Historic Landmark and through your generous donations we can continue to preserve USS Bowfin and our many artifacts for years to come. Our mission is “…the development and maintenance of a memorial park, whose principal exhibit is the World War II submarine, USS Bowfin (SS-287). Bowfin Park is a memorial to the 52 submarines and more than 3,500 submariners lost during World War II...” Your donations will go directly to the maintenance of USS Bowfin, as well as the upkeep of the beautiful waterfront memorial.

DONATE TO THE RESTORATION FUND
USS Bowfin went out on nine war patrols between 1943 and 1945, similar to what we think of as deployments today. Our mission to keep her in as close to 1945 World War II arrangement as possible largely depends on our submarine enthusiasts and donors. Your support of our historic ships restoration work is greatly appreciated.
