Are you looking for something different and a little bit out of the ordinary for your group to do? The Arkansas Inland Maritime Museumhas just the answer – an overnight stay aboard the USS Razorback submarine.
This piece of American Naval historywas present in Tokyo Bay at the signing of the Peace Treaty ending World War II. Named after the whale, not the University of Arkansas sports mascot, it is the only vessel to have earned battle ribbons in World War II and Vietnam. After being decommissioned, the sub was sold to Turkey where it served for 30 years at the Murat Rels.
The craft complements North Little Rock’s other military history found at the Arkansas National Guard Museum, Camp Robinson, and Camp Pike. The sub is docked at the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum on the Arkansas River north shore at 120 Riverfront Park Drive. For more information call 501-371-8320 or visit http://aimm.museum/.
