Last weekend, my uncle and I hopped on a plane and visited OMSI (the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry).

Along with their indoor exhibits, the museum’s grounds also harbored a decommissioned submarine, the USS Blueback. After purchasing tour tickets, I got to explore the inside of the boat and learn about each of its different rooms.
