Museum Updates

I want to apologize for the lack of regular updates to the blog.  We have had a very busy spring here at AIMM and there has not been much time to devote to the blog.  That said, I want to post some updates.

 Happy Birthday, USS Razorback!

Seventy years ago today, April 3, 1944, USS Razorback was commissioned into the U.S. Fleet.  Razorback would go on to complete five war patrols in the western Pacific and earn five Battle Stars for her service.


We will have a free day at the museum on Saturday, April 5, 2014.  All tours will be free of charge from 10:00am to 5:30pm.  Come on out and get a tour of the boat and have some cake...while it lasts!  Please bear in mind the last tour will begin promptly at 5:30pm.

Museum Exhibit Space Opening April 19.

After an extensive remodel of our exhibit spaces, I am pleased to announce we will re-open the museum space on April 19, 2014.  Updated exhibits include:  USS Razorback, USS Hoga, USS Arkansas (CGN-41), and USS Arkansas (BB-33).  Many new and never before artifacts will be on display.
We also have a new permanent exhibit featuring the Arkansas River and the Arkansas River Historical Society.
