The submarine Abtao served 48 years in the Peruvian Navy. In 1998 Abtao was decommissioned and became the first floating museum in Latin America. Being inside a submarine is for us landlubbers always exciting, but visiting the Abtao is much more than that. A special sound and vibration system combined with a "real" command post and other gadgets turn us spectators into participants and let us experience life on a submarine.

During the visit you even take part in an attack. A great place for kids and adults to become a submariner, at least for one day.
