Place was closed, we could see the Submarine from far away... I have the feeling is closed for good.. Looks dirty and in a not good neighborhood. Don't go unless you are sure is open yo the public. Small children are not allowed inside the attraction said at the entrance.

One of the only museums to stay open later (think we went at 5pm!) Check schedule on website. Very interesting tour, the museum is very small but still interesting. Kids under 5 cannot enter the submarine FYI.

The tour of the submarine was very interesting. Tour guide was animated and knowledgeable. Be sure to bring quarters to feed the turtles! Museum is small but has quite a few artifacts and displays. Items in gift shop are reasonably priced. Rest rooms are very clean which is always a HUGE plus.

What an inspiring adventure. I don't know of a better way to understand what the World War II Submariners endured while serving our country under the waves. The cramped quarters, the smell of diesel, the lack of showers, lack of laundry facilities and the best part of the submarine service was the outstanding cooks and food they served. If you... More

We found this gem on the Roadtrippers App and it was fantastic. It's a wonderful part of history in a beautiful part of town. You get to tour an actual US submarine that's still 90% operational. Our entire family loved it, but beware if you are not down with tight quarters this tour isn't for you.

WOW! A Submarine floating on the Arkansas River. Nice guided tour on the USS Razorback a WWII Submarine converted to a Guppy IIA during the cold war and later used by the Turkish Navy until 2002. Unlike other ships on display around the US this one is complete and unmodified. Guide said most everything works and they even run one... More

The tour was ideal for my military-loving son. The museum is small, but has air conditioning. My two yr old and I didn't get to go on the tour of the submarine, because he wasn't old enough and there wasn't much to keep him occupied. We got there right at ten, so my husband and six yr old got a... More

Plan for several hours and some 16-rung ladder climbing but it was easy for a 65 year-old. Easy to find with GPS, but you end up in a parking lot by the river with no signage indicating you're there. Not for young children!
