Witness the German submarine that, on June 4, 1944, "was prowling off the coast of West Africa on a hunt for American and Allied ships, when depth charges from the USS Chatelain blasted the dreaded U-boat out of hiding," according to the Museum of Science and Industry Chicago's website. "It was the end of a violent run for U-505, which had terrorized the Atlantic Ocean as part of a massive U-boat campaign that almost altered the outcome of World War II." This display allows visitors to step inside the submarine, which is now a landmark memorial.
