Visit the American Undersea Warfare Center and immerse yourself in our National Heritage. We offer you a unique experience with self-guided tours available on the USS Cavalla, a World War II submarine that sank a Japanese aircraft carrier involved in the Pearl Harbor attacks, and the USS Stewart, a World War II destroyer escort which is one of only three left in the world.


The history, thrill and mystery of these World War II Naval vessels comes to life during an educational overnight program. Learn more about our educational programs, or sign up for a group sleepover.


Take a sneak peek at the American Undersea Warfare Center and check out our vessels before you visit our facilities at Seawolf Park on Galveston Island. Click here to view our photo gallery

Your chance to sleep aboard history

Last weekend, the American Undersea Warfare Center hosted Boy Scout Troop 1288 for a sleepover education program. Troop 1288 is from Katy, Texas. We had a blast hosting them!

Do you want to sleep aboard history? It’s a unique experience, sleeping on a vintage World War II submarine or destroyer escort. In fact, it’s something only sailors and submariners can speak about. If you’ve got a group of 20 or more, we’ve got a place for you to sleep overnight – a place filled with the magic and mystery of history. From our bonus package – which is just $35 per camper – to our bonus package at $50 per overnight guest, we’ve got a combination that works for you and your group to experience a living history aboard our vessels here at Seawolf Park on beautiful and historic Galveston Island, Texas.

For more information about our sleepover program, contact the AUWC, or 409-770-3196.
