Fantastic exhibits. Had my mom who uses a walker and we were added to a tour of 4th graders. There were about 4 other couples also added to tour. The staff took time to be sure everyone got to see their items. The kids were super well behaved wish I knew what school and I would tell them. Don't miss... More

I am currently on a field trip with my daughter (as we speak!). The men that are doing the reenactments are extremely Rude. Several times they have basically told this group of 10 years olds to "shut up!" Although I love visiting Arkansas State museums and Parks We WILL NOT be back! What a disappointment! I'm hoping that you guys... More

The Historic Arkansas Museum is a modern museum which is adjacent to a truly historic district of early 19th century buildings. It has a number of very old Little Rock Buildings, including the oldest log cabin/tavern, a print shop, and docents doing cooking in a kitchen that is apart from the house....both to make sure the house did not get...

If you want to know all about the history of Arkansas, this museum is for you. This museum has indoor and outdoor exhibits (including old Arkansas homes). The museum is new-looking and has several small-ish galleries, including one that features quilts and another that features knives. There is a gallery that discusses the interactions of Native Americans and European settlers.... More

We were visiting friends in little rock and they took us here. They'd been over Christmas for some holiday festivities and enjoyed themselves. We came on the first Sunday of the month and apparently it's free on that day. Perhaps because it was winter, but not all the outside old log buildings were open to visit. They had a nice... More

We were looking for something to do as a family over the holidays and discovered this museum after a google search. The museum is free, the tour of the historic buildings (still located in their original locations downtown) is only $2 for adults, the guide was knowledgeable, and the museum galleries were full of interesting exhibits. A short introductory video... More

This was a great way to get familiar with Little Rock, Arkansas' history and culture. It was very informative and interesting. The facility was homey and the people were extremely friendly. I saw interviews, short films, displays and met some intriguing people. It is located in a beautiful setting with free parking and was not overcrowded. It is good stopping... More
