The USS Cod is a retired World War II SS-224 submarine, moored at Cleveland’s North Coast Harbor. This National Historic Site is the only such vessel to be kept intact and visitors climb the vertical ladders through its hatches, just as the sailors did during active duty. Seasonal museum open May 1 through September 30, daily 10AM until 5PM.
The International Women’s Air & Space Museum is located in North Coast Harbor in the terminal of Burke Lakefront Airport, only seconds from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum and the Great Lakes Science Center. The mission of IWASM is to preserve the history of women in aviation and space and to document their continuing contributions today and in the future. In 1986 the museum opened in Centerville, Ohio. IWASM was welcomed to the City of Cleveland, Ohio in 1998, where you will find their home at Burke Lakefront Airport. Exhibits are in the lobby at Burke, as well as the west concourse, and are accessible seven days a week. For additional information and upcoming events please visit www.iwasm.org.
