Maritime Museum To Reopen


The Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum in North Little Rock is getting ready to reopen to the public.

The USS Razorback and other crafts have been closed since January, so they could be placed in their permanent locations on the Arkansas River.

The museum's director, Greg Zonner, says volunteers have been working thousands of hours improving ship interiors, putting up new displays and moving artifacts.

Zonner says, “Once we kind of get open, we still have a lot of work to do. We have the museum yet to be moved down here from the other building, but with that said, it'll be exciting to get everything opened all in one place at the same time."

Zonner says it's been a project four years in the making.

The museum will be open Saturday from 10 a.m. until just before dark.
