Visited with friends from out of town. Everyone totally enjoyed the original costumes and other GWTW-related memorabilia. Historic Arkansas Museum has hit a home run with this exhibit!

We only had time to look around the galleries which were okay. Would have liked to have had time to take the guided only tour around the Historic Homes.

This museum has the best American Indian exhibit I have seen. The other art is interesting but a small collection. Unfortunately, we did not get to tour the buildings.

It's a place unlike you've been to in a long time. History is brought to life no matter your age. Children have activities, adults have treasures to behold, and the whole family has incredible sights to see!

We really enjoyed our visit. The staff was knowledgeable and friendly. We actually learned alot about life back in the mid 1800s from talking to the interpreters.

This museum has several preserved buildings as a "village". The docent did an excellent job intreperting the site, and the museum had a great exhibit about native americans.
