AIMM Closed - High Water Returning

AIMM will be closed until further notice.

The Army Corps of Engineers has advised us that, due to the heavy rainfall in Oklahoma and Western Arkansas, the Arkansas River is expected to rise another 2-3 feet in the next 24 hours and the high water levels will continue until the middle of next week.

This will return water levels to nearly the same level as January, when, as the picture above shows, the water was over our gangway.

Also, our power lines run under our main gangway, so when the water gets this high, we are without power for our waiting area's A/C, cash register, and most importantly, bathrooms.

So, AIMM will be closed until further notice.

Also, the 4th of July fireworks viewing has been cancelled this year.

Please feel free to contact the museum at 501-371-8320 or by e-mail if you have any questions.
