The USS Nautilus Memorial and Submarine Force Museum provided a permanent home for the first nuclear submarine at Groton, CT. As exhibit designer on staff at Cambridge Seven Associates, Tom Ancona collaborated with architects and designers in designing the building and exhibits that celebrated the USS Nautilus submarine and chronicled the history of submarining. Opened in 1986, the museum is essentially unchanged since opening day.
