USS Batfish

A war submarine on land in Oklahoma. You can go inside a real, dry submarine.

Looks fabulous! We assume your visit was before the 2019 flood, when interior access to the submarine was still allowed...

World War II Sub - U.S.S. Batfish

The U.S.S. Batfish Military Museum is much larger than expected -- very cool. Admission into park is $7 for adults.

U.S.S. Batfish - Mesmerizing Mammaries

As you drive on the access roads to the U.S.S. Batfish, and you look east, you will see two City of Muskogee domed water tanks, rising from mounds. If you look at just the right moment, they look like breasts. So do two tanks at the nearby Port of Muskogee if you REALLY use your imagination.
