Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum, North Little Rock

(4.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
Hosting more than 100,000 guests from all 50 states and 77 foreign countries, the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum in North Little Rock, Arkansas, is most recognized for featuring the longest-serving submarine in the world. USS Razorback served in World War II, the Vietnam War and the Cold War and was one of 11 submarines present in Tokyo Bay during the formal surrender of Japan in World War II. After being decommissioned, the submarine was transferred to the Turkish Navy in 1970 where she conducted missions along the Black Sea until 2001. In 2004 she found her final home when the City of North Little Rock purchased the submarine from the Turkish government. The museum topside offers naval artifacts and features until August 2013 a temporary Captain’s Cabin Exhibit highlighting each of Razorback’s captains. The museum includes a theater, research library and gift shop that visitors can peruse at their leisure.

  • We visited Little Rock in June and tacked on the museum as a quick adventure just before leaving and it was great. The sub tour was just the right length and our guide was friendly and entertaining. We really got the impression that he loved the job and loved the material. One of the best things we saw in the city, hands down, and a great way to finish off the visit.
