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.

Plus a lot of funny stories about the Bowie knife. Many of the knives are works of art. Another room has quilts and fabric art work. Nice but not a lot on... More

My fiance', son and I visited this museum as family outing during the summer. I remember visiting his museum as a child when I was in elementary school and appreciate being able to explore these old homes. I enjoyed the short historic movie that was shown in the theatre prior to the tour of the old homes. The tour guide... More
