Glad we went. Not crowded at all. Some interesting things about the Civil War and the Black Seminoles that I'd never heard of.

This is a nice historic site for a quick visit. Been a while since I have seen the exhibits offered. The grounds are lovely and it sits in the Quapaw Historic District. Lots of lovely homes in the area to see.

This historic building and grounds has so much history. From the civil war to WWII. Nothing fancy, just simple history of Arkansas' role in these battles. Take about 2-3 hours to see the building, grounds and movie on Gen. McArthur, who was born on these...More

This is an excellent free museum, easy to find with lots of parking. This is a historical structure which now houses the MacArthur Museum. The staff is pleasant and friendly. While not a huge museum it is well worth the effort to see. It offers...More

A lot of interesting information about Arkansas' military history. I could only stay about an hour, but would have stayed longer if I could. I'll go back if I ever get back to Little Rock.

This museum is a strange mix of an historic armory building, birthplace of Douglas McArthur and museum to his life, and a lot of other exhibits about wars in the last couple hundred years, with emphasis on the role of Arkansas. The exhibits on McArthur...More
