This National Park Service site encompasses the campus, but Central High is still an active high school. Visitors should park and begin their visit at the National Park Visitor Center, located diagonally across from the campus. Visitor entrance into the school is via free Ranger-led tours, which should be reserved in advance. « less

Esse Purse Museum at 1510 S. Main in the SoMa district of Little Rock opened its doors in late June 2013 to share what's inside the fabulous exhibit featuring almost 300 bags. More than just a fashion history, the museum showcases the evolution of the 20th-century American woman - decade by decade - through the bags she carried and the contents within. The delightful by-decade displays of purses are complemented by carefully selected items women from each era carried - true history held in a handbag. Small photos in the displays and enormous backlit photos on the north wall show real women with their personal bags. Three cozy dioramas - "Nothing's More Natural Than Skin," "By Land, Sea or Air" and "A Night on the Town" - feature specialty purses, and a large, whimsical art installation addresses the essence of a woman, her handbag and the contents within. Esse, which grew out of a traveling exhibit selected from owner Anita Davis' extensive collection of bags, is housed in a historic building in an up-and-coming, hip neighborhood, close to other world famous attractions like Central High School (the only school that is a national park) and the William J. Clinton Presidential Center and Park. More than just a trip down memory lane or history lesson, Esse Purse Museum is a don't-miss experience. Museum hours are 11 a.M. To 4 p.M. Tuesday through Sunday. Admission is $10, $8 for students (6-18), seniors (60 and up) and military. Children 5 and younger are free. Call for group rates and special tours. « less
