Hosting 20,000 annually from all 50 states and 81 foreign countries, the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum in North Little Rock, Arkansas, is most recognized for featuring Naval bookends to World War II. Hoga (YT 146) is the last surviving Navy vessel from the attack on Pearl Harbor and USS Razorback (SS 394) is one of 12 submarines present in Tokyo Bay during the formal surrender of Japan in 1945. Tours are provided aboard Razorback that served in World War II, the Vietnam War and the Cold War, as well as service in the Turkish Navy from 1970 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, diorama of Pearl Harbor and a gift shop that visitors can peruse at their leisure.

  • Very cool experience! My son loves military history, especially WW2. We took a trip to Little Rock to tour this submarine. Was smaller than I thought, but guided tour was very informative and fun. Mus...  more »

  • A great tour of a WWII submarine that has had a long life over many decades of service. Unlike many sub tours, this one is mostly unmodified. Be ready to climb on ladders and squeeze through hatches. It is easy enough for most but may not be for everyone. It really is a fun 30 minutes of history.
  • If you like navy and warships you must go there. Amazing place! USS Razorback served in WWII. It's a submarine, it was in the harbor during Japanese signing their surrender. It has 12 kills? If I recall correctly. She is absolutely incredible. You get a guided tour through the USS Razorback They also have USS Hoga that they're trying to preserve and save, a WWII tug and fire extinguisher boat that saved numerous ships after the Pearl Harbor attack.
  • This is a great piece of history. A hidden jewel. If you are in the area check it out! It is definitely worth the time. Our tour guide was a young scout that was very knowledgeable of the history of the submarine. Thank you for the great tour!
  • Awesome tour of a submarine by a very knowledgeable guide. From the climb down the deck, stern to bow tour covered all aspects of life on this battle tested boat. It is a tight squeeze, but then again, it is a submarine!
  • Since the submarine is still 90% operational you cannot turn any of the knobs or levers. There is a 14 ft. climb in and out of the submarine. It is cool to see one of the submarines that served during WW2.
