It was interesting to see the history, however, part of the Old State House was closed while we were there. Also, when viewing the Inaugural gowns of the First Ladies of Arkansas - it is poorly lit (perhaps not to damage the gowns). But it did make it difficult to see them.

The building is historically loaded with Arkansas. I did the photo thing at the whistle stop.

The Old State House is really interesting. They offer guided tours and frequently have neat exhibits on display. Its funded by donations so they arent going to charge you an admission fee. I lik this place. Its a cheap, educationl form of entertainment that offers a detailed look at some of Arkansas' history
