  • Needs more space and have walk through instead just stuff in small room
  • My ancestor was aboard the Sultana when it exploded (his body was never recovered). The museum does an outstanding job of preserving the history of the worst maritime disaster in American history. Through informative and well planned out displays, you gain an immediate understanding of how the disaster came about. Also included are personal items from several of the survivors constructed from remains of the steamer. It is a significant event in Arkansas history that is overlooked. This museum, with its very knowledgeable staff, is absolutely worth visiting.
