About Us:

The Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum is located in North Shore Riverwalk Park along the north shore of the Arkansas River in North Little Rock, Arkansas. The museum opened on May 31, 2005.

Visitors can experience the sights, sounds, and smells of submarine service when they step aboard the historic submarine USS Razorback (SS-394). Visitors will soon be able to step aboard the historic tugboat USS Hoga (YT-146).

The museum also features exhibits on the following Naval vessels: the submarine USS Razorback (SS-394), the tugboat USS Hoga (YT-146), the battleship USS Arkansas (BB-33), and the missile cruiser USS Arkansas (CGN-41). The museum also holds a collection from the Arkansas River Historical Society featuring the history of the Arkansas River.

The North Shore Riverwalk Park surrounding the facility features two memorials dedicated to submarines USS Snook (SS-279) and USS Scorpion (SSN-589). There is also a Peace Garden for the community to celebrate the ideal of peace in this war-torn world.

Nice stop. We only had time for the submarine tour, its guided and the tour guide was knowledgeable and enjoyed it. The sub is cool so going in the summer is no problem. I didn't really have time to look at much else but there is some neat stuff and good info here. My 10 year old enjoyed it as well

This museum is a hidden gem in Arkansas. The sheer volume of history here took my breath away. A few minor spoilers: this boat served in the final months of WWII. The battle record shows that the crew threw themselves into the fight like raging lions. She was based out of Pearl Harbor and was present for the Japanese surrender. She was present during Vietnam, and then was sold to the Turkish Navy. After she was sold for scrap, she was recovered and brought here to be a museum. The staff is very friendly and willing to slow the tour down so you can take pictures. We had an amazing tour guide, and my only regret is that I didn't get permission to mention him by name here. Suffice to say, this was my favorite museum trip in a long time.

What a wondeful place. You really feel what the crew felt with all of the complicated looking components! The tour guide staff was really nice and they really know what they're talking about. 10/10 would recommend!

There is nothing like being able to see a place that our Wonderful US soldiers spent much of their time in the service. It's taking a walk through history. Great for the entire family.

This submarine tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Little Rock! A MUST-SEE! Tour guide was excellent and answered all of our questions. The museum next to the submarine gives a lot of history on Pearl Harbor & other navy-related history. Pretty interesting.
