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.

  • My great uncle was a veteran of Korea and guided tours on this boat for years. He loved it! It's an awesome experience that shouldn't be missed.
  • Very peaceful and it was fun to see children outside enjoying the activities
  • not for someone that does not like small places. but very interesting
  • One of the few places where you can go into a submarine. Be aware that it is small and require going up and down vertical ladder.
  • How many people get to tour a WWII-era submarine? Answer. Not many. This is what you will be able to do here as well as take a tour of the Arkansas River on a 19th-century paddleboat. What a treat!
