Very good smaller type local museum

This is an attractively organized and displayed museum with a lot of information available in stacks and so on. It has visual displays as well. Well worth the time to visit.

This attraction is well worth the time to explore the outbuildings, including the oldest standing building in Little Rock, dating from the 1820's. The grounds are beautiful. This tour is a fascinating look into early Arkansas life.

We got there too late and only got to enjoy the grounds for about 30 minutes before they closed it up. There was very little to none help inside - we never figured out where and what the museum inside was. Loved the gift shop tho

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
