Aboard a World War II Submarine in Arkansas

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... read more

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!

I've seen a few submarines over the years, and this one, well is another one, and not the best I've seen (the German sub in Chicago is unbeatable). BUT the visit actually become awesome beyond expectations. The guide was an older fella, veteran submarine mate, and brought so much interesting stuff to the visit. No long boring explanations, only interesting... More

We went to Heifer Intl (it was closed), the presidential library, river market, big dam, and here. This was the BEST of them all. Wonderful guide gave us an interesting, humorous and thorough tour. Highly recommend!

Stopped here on a whim and visited the museum and toured the USS Razorback submarine. Glad we did... The museum was just ok but the submarine tour was informative and fun. Kids would enjoy this....

This was very informative....no air in any part of the ship, so beware for summer. I'm sure it would get VERY hot. Several short ladders to climb.

This is a great family stop. We were on a road trip to Tennessee and stopped overnight in Little Rock, and just happened to notice a submarine docked in the river near our hotel, Riverfront Wyndham (Also good choice..their bkst omelet station was great). My daughter looked it up and we all went to tour next morning. Great time for... More
