Before my husband and I left for our great Southern adventure at the beginning of August, I had noticed that this would just be a quick photo-op and get my National Park Passport stamped in the visitor center because the house was closed due to a fire (arson) back in December. When we walked in, a ranger kindly met us,... More

The main house is currently close for renovations. As such the only thing to see is a few pictures in the visitors center and some videos on an iPad. The staff were very friendly and helpful. I would probably give a higher rating if tours of the house were available.

This is a quick stop to learn a bit about our 42nd President and earn a stamp for your National Park Passport book. The house is still closed for renovations, but you can look inside and visit the small informative display about his life in the visitor's center.

Though the house is under repair from a fire we could not go in still nice to say I visited it. The visitors center was very informative.

My friends and I stopped by here on a road trip through Arkansas (we just happened to see a sign for it on the interstate and took the exit to check it out). The house was closed for renovations but the visitor's center had a great exhibit with pictures of the home. There was a young man named Aaron Charles... More

We made a very quick stop while on our way thru the area. Modest home. Nothing else in the area. But we were gassing up so it was a quick stop.

The house gives you an idea that everything is possible. Small and basic home of Bill Clinton gives you a form of connection with history. My kids are small and don't understand what politics are, but just making a connection with history gives them a little more understanding.

It is a historic place but not really what I was expecting. It's just really a simple modest home. The tour guides are great though. They really know their facts and are very helpful.

When we got to Clinton's Birthplace was the first time we found out that you could only go into the visitor center. Last December (2015) there was an interior fire and the house is closed and being repaired. No reopening date was given. Thus not worth the effort.
