So they have two sections in this museum. The inside and the outside. Right know a lot of the inside is either closed or going through a renovation. The lady explained since they had that going on admission was waived for the moment. The inside had a awesome quilt display and a native American display. One on the first floor one of the second. They also had a children's art display but we didn't go look at that. The outside had a whole half block restored house that thankful since they arent doing tours at the moment they pointed out they did have a phone tour to help you realize what you where seeing. They also have across the street a setup of a farm house with a couple of out buildings. This was interesting and Im glad we found it. They do have free parking and its confusing to get to but we did with not much problem.

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!

A superb small museum with costumed docents leading you through historic period buildings. The buildings have been thoughtfully restored and the docents are interesting and informative. The are also interesting contemporary art and historic displays in the modern museum building.

We just visited this lovely museum, and what a pleasure it was!

The guided tour of the buildings, for a VERY nominal fee ($1.50 for seniors) was truly exceptional. Casey was our docent, and he was amazing! He is passionate about what he does, he knows such a lot of the regional history, and he really brings a lot of knowledge to the subject. Thanks very much Casey.

Another real highlight was the living history guide who was portraying Tabby, a person of history from the appropriate time era. The woman was truly exceptional....you really believed her. She is a gifted re-enactor, making history come alive.

Don't miss this gem of a museum!

We stopped by and were given VIP treatment. We took a tour of the old houses and pub that included actors to present the information. We got to see a Bowie knife and a lot of the history of the area.

I went to the Clinton library yesterday. Should've come here first!!!! Much better exhibit with a deeper history of Arkansas with an great outdoor tour of the old houses for $2.50. Alyssa at the front desk was super helpful and friendly and the gift shop staff were nice.

The Bowie exhibit was my favorite; never knew much about the history of knives. I enjoyed the native America Exhibit as well. Had some interesting artifacts for display. Would come here again and recommend it for any curious traveler!!!! Two thumbs up!!!

It was raining when we got here and the very friendly staff let us watch the little movie about the museum and historic homes they have outside that they usually show groups of school children. The museum has a nice collection of art, indian artifacts and knives and guns. For a really small fee we toured the outside grounds where costumed historical interpreters told about their building and explained things about life back then.

This was a great way to get familiar with Little Rock, Arkansas' history and culture. It was very informative and interesting. The facility was homey and the people were extremely friendly. I saw interviews, short films, displays and met some intriguing people. It is located in a beautiful setting with free parking and was not overcrowded. It is good stopping point to relax and enjoy in a small amount of time. It is just a hop, jump and a skip away from shopping and we could walk to good restaurants. We stayed about one hour and a half. We met some sweet peacocks strolling around and enjoyed watching the natural habitat connected to the museum,. The museum is small, free and very accommodating. I didn't do any activities that required a fee. The stories told by the people from that area are very interesting and it was a nice quick way to get acquainted with the area.

A very informative museum, with good photo and quilt displays. Free entry and plenty of parking nearby with easy access from the Interstate.
