  1. i grew up within walking distance of the Museum of Science and Industry, and toured the 505 dozens of times, most recently about 20 years ago, just before she was moved to her current exhibit. On that last tour the boat had been curated and restored to represent her as she may have been on the first day of a patrol (minus the grunge and reek as she’d have after weeks at sea!) The museum had also employed a docent who actually knew a lot about the boat, crew, and history of the U-boat service. i was present (although as an infant in my family’s arms) the day the 505 was hauled up from Lake Michigan to the Museum. Thank you for the link to this post!
