Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum




Situated on the beautiful Arkansas River, the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum is a delightful, if not unique, venue for your special day. It’s got an industrial, adventurous ambience to it, with a submarine, tug boat, and the Main Street and Junction Bridges framing it on either side. There’s an extensive lobby area inside the museum with inside dining space, or you can opt for the outdoor covered patio and enjoy the river views and beautiful sunsets. For some pre-wedding fun, you can even host your bachelorette party in the USS Razorback- submarine sleepovers are a thing, ladies! It’ll be an adventurous night of bonding before you leave single life. This venue, set against the Little Rock skyline, adds a perfect dose of nautical charm without requiring a you to trek to the beach, and with all the fun, interesting exhibits, you and your guests are sure to be entertained.
