The Mission of The Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum is to create and maintain the finest submarine memorial in the World, to include a display of submarine related artifacts, and a Park and to support the Navy as appropriate.
The Pacific Fleet Submarine Memorial Association (PFSMA) founded in 1978 to establish the Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum to serve as a memorial to those gallant Sailors who manned the Submarine Force in WWII, during the Cold War, today and into the future; to maintain as a centerpiece of this memorial museum the Fleet Submarine USS BOWFIN (SS 287), or permanent display in Hawaii, as an educational tool and as an inspiration to present and future generations; to create an Educational Outreach Program within the Community including an endowed Bowfin Scholarship Program; and be a centerpiece for public awareness and understanding of the Submarine Force including its evolution, history and future.
In 2021, the Association completed a two-year, 23-million-dollar renovation of our campus. The Pacific Fleet Submarine Museum was expanded and revitalized to serve as a memorial to those gallant Sailors who manned the U.S. Submarine Force in WWII, the Cold War, today, and into the future. This renovation will ensure that the museum and USS Bowfin will continue to be a vibrant and significant part of Pearl Harbor and the Pearl Harbor Historic Sites.
