Military Museum Museum
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.

  • If you like navy and shops you must go there. Amazing place! USS Razorback served if WWII, it is a submarine, it was in the harbor during Japanese signing their surrender. It has 16 kills? If I recall correctly. She is absolutely incredible. 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
  • What a great piece of history and an excellent trip to see . As a history buff and Veteran I had wanted to see the USS Arkansas for awhile . It was a great tour , and tour guide was very good . Even my wife enjoyed the history of it all . Highly recommend visiting if your in the area .
  • Great place to see a WWII sub. Staff is very knowledgeable. Would recommend about an hour for this place well worth the 10$
  • I've had two total knee replacements the last one was done in January of 17 yes I was able to climb up and down 14 foot ladders and climb through each section of the submarine had a great time very informative very interesting I loved it. IT was a challenge but I beat this challenge.
  • Saw the SUBMARINE RAZORBACK. Fantastic ship, enjoyed the view of the inside of this great vessel.
