The Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum opened in 2005 and has lovingly become one of central Arkansas’ best kept secrets. Within the historic walls of this structure your group will see an impressive focus on commemorating America’s rich naval and maritime heritage through the presentation and exhibition of historic naval vessels with an emphasis on the era from WWII to the present. This museum serves as the chartered organization for the Quapaw Area Council Sea Scout Ship 394 and also as the gathering place for many various parties, meetings, and special events throughout the region.
Your group will have the chance to choose from several guided tours within the museum, they even offer submarine sleepovers for a truly immersive educational experience. You will experience firsthand how the men lived aboard the Razorback on your visit, as well as see several exhibits about WWII era vessels and Arkansas River history. The main focus of the museum is the USS Razorback submarine, but you will also get to see the USS Arkansas and the USS Hoga, a tug that survived and responded to the attack on Pearl Harbor. This is one exciting educational stop any history or maritime buff in your group is going to love!
