Opening Day of the New Section of the Museum

On opening day of the expanded museum barge section of the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum, the Burnett and Hogan families of Conway, Arkansas spent a few minutes learning the history of Razorback. Brian Burnett can be seen in front of the Turkish section of the museum. Razorback spent more years serving in the Turkish Navy as Muratreis than she did as the 394 boat.

We have added over 10 new display cases with exhibits on the battleship USS Arkansas, submarine history, and our continuing exhibit, "This is War!", an original exhibit about the Pearl Harbor attack and some of the ordinary Arkansans who were present that awful day.

In addition, we have expanded the number of Razorback artifacts on display, as well as putting over 25 new photographs and new documents on display for our visitors to enjoy.

Come by and learn more of the history of this amazing piece of US Naval history.
