I wish I had really taken in how beautiful & meaningful this school is while I attended. I take my kids here now occasionally just to walk around the front. I would really love to see the inside again since it was renovated.

Excellent civil rights history of school integration in 1957. The visitor's center presents excellent displays of the struggle to achieve school integration. Call ahead to see about a tour of the school, led by a ranger or a student.

I love my school. I go almost every year for my Birthday just because this is where I graduated from. Great historical place to visit. Make sure to take your children by here to experience. #TIGERS4EVER!

The museum it very nice. You should make sure to call ahead because they have school groups that come during the week so they don’t have tours available all the time. Nice little gift shop inside.

Make sure you call ahead to reserve your spot for a free tour, either at 9:00 am or 1:00 pm. Our tour guide shared stories from the Little Rock Nine about their experiences. The stories made me cringe and gave me chills! These nine ladies...More

When traveling to Little Rock one must see the Historical Central High School. The museum and the area are a wealth of history of the integration of this local now historical high school. Experience this part of history while visiting!

Really interesting history in the Civil Rights movement. Great exhibit. The high school is right across from the museum and is beautiful. Free parking and free entrance. A must see if in Little Rock.
