Hosting 20,000 annually from all 50 states and 81 foreign countries, the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum in North Little Rock, Arkansas, is most recognized for featuring Naval bookends to World War II. Hoga (YT 146) is the last surviving Navy vessel from the attack on Pearl Harbor and USS Razorback (SS 394) is one of 12 submarines present in Tokyo Bay during the formal surrender of Japan in 1945. Tours are provided aboard Razorback that served in World War II, the Vietnam War and the Cold War, as well as service in the Turkish Navy from 1970 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, diorama of Pearl Harbor and a gift shop that visitors can peruse at their leisure.

  • I brought my 5 year old son here. We had a great visit. Our guide was knowedgable and clearly passionate about what they do here. It's incredible how much they let you see and touch in the submarine. The history was fascinating. Not a place for those who get anxiety in tight spaces though! My mother is claustrophobic and wouldn't go inside. They refunded her money and she enjoyed touring the museum up above.
  • For only 10 dollars there is a lot that can be learned and enjoyed about the Razorback and it's illustrious history. Taking the free guided tour of the 394 Submarine was incredible. It is amazing to physically go through and feel how tight the space is on a sub. Very enlightening.
