The Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum is home to the USS Razorback, the longest-serving submarine in the world. Launched in 1944 from the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard in Maine, the USS Razorback entered Tokyo Harbor in 1945 with 11 other submarines to take part in the formal surrender of Japan. After being awarded five battle stars in the Pacific Theater during World War II and four stars during the Vietnam War, the USS Razorback was sold to the Turkish Navy in 1970 and recommissioned as the TCG Muratreis, conducting missions in the Black Sea and along the Marmara Sea coast until 2001. The submarine was sold to the City of North Little Rock in 2004 and then transferred across the Atlantic Ocean to its final home in Arkansas.

More than just a military museum, it also offers a research library, a theater, and a large museum area. With several guided tours, AIMM focus is to commemorate America's rich naval and maritime heritage through the preservation and exhibition of historic naval vessels with an emphasis on the era of World War II through the present.
