Buy A Brick For Permanent Paver Walkway

In the Spring of 2012, The Submarine Force Museum & USS Nautilus began creating a commemorative Permanent Paver Walkway at the Museum. Paver bricks were available to purchase in honor or memory of a special person(s).

The Permanent Paver Walkway is being installed in front of the Museum’s entrance, and it is visible to all who visit. The Museum’s beautiful setting overlooks the Thames River and is adjacent to the Submarine Base in Groton, Connecticut.

This enduring legacy has quickly become a wonderful way to memorialize a loved one or honor someone special with a meaningful gift. Each purchaser receives a commemorative certificate for every brick purchased. Buying a brick also entitles you to:

  • Yearly membership for purchasing a 5×10″ brick or a lifetime membership for purchasing an 10×10″ brick
  • 10% discount at the Nautilus Ship’s Store
  • Our monthly Klaxon newsletter filled with submarine history

Fly A Flag

The Submarine Force Museum Association, in conjunction with the Submarine Force Museum and USS Nautilus, is pleased to introduce our FLY A FLAG OVER THE USS NAUTILUS program. Buying a flag to be flown over the Nautilus is a wonderful way to memorialize a loved one or to honor someone special. Each flag can be flown on the day of your choosing, is folded and presented with a certificate of authenticity.

Please note that two weeks notice is required for the flying of a flag.
