Museum “Submarine” is one of the exhibits of the Museum and Exhibition Complex of the Moscow Navy in the park “Northern Tushino”. The vessel is located on the shore of Khimki Reservoir. The grand opening took place on July 26, 2006. Since then the museum regularly receives guests wishing to see how the submarine looks like from inside and get acquainted with the environment in which the sailors lived and carried out combat missions.
However, a few changes had to be made to the design of the vessel. To allow children and people with disabilities to freely enter the museum, the hatches were replaced with convenient passageways.
Unlike other similar places, it is not forbidden to touch the exhibits here. It is not forbidden to take photos or videos. All seven of the ship’s compartments are open to guests.
Visitors can see the sailors’ quarters, the instrument panel, the control room, the neutralized mines and ammunition. The boat is only partially submerged, so guests can see the propeller structure. In the summertime, in favorable weather, you can visit the upper deck. Each compartment has interactive displays telling about the history of the submarine and the Russian submarine forces.
Diesel-electric submarine B-396 was built in 1979 in Nizhny Novgorod. She could accommodate up to seventy-eight crew members. During its service from 1981 to 1988 the submarine managed to perform combat missions in the Barents Sea, Norwegian Sea, Mediterranean Sea, in the North and South parts of the Atlantic Ocean.
After the boat was decommissioned, it was decided not to destroy it, but to reconstruct it a bit and leave it to serve the people as a museum. The current location of the boat museum was not chosen immediately. There were several options: Gorky Park, Taras Shevchenko embankment and the Kremlin embankment. Eventually, they decided to place the boat on the embankment of Khimki Reservoir in Severnoe Tushino Park. The museum was opened on the Navy Day in summer 2006.
