The conservation of the USS Pampanito is an important on-going job that requires work on a daily basis as well as regular cyclic dry docking. Scheduled to enter the dry dock every seven years, the Pampanito is the only historic naval museum ship to have completed four dry dockings as a museum.From the time Pampanito was opened to the public in 1982, a process has been underway to return the submarine to her appearance and condition as it was the moment she left Hunters Point in 1945 to represent the height of WW II submarine development. The Association has searched the country looking for missing equipment and spare parts.

With your help we are able to preserve and restore this unique vessel, which honors the past as a living monument and memorial to the submariners who served in World War II and touches the future as a museum and educational facility.
