What travelers are saying
- While I think other NPS sites do a better job of covering 1960's civil rights issues, the big take home point here is the challenges those six kids had to deal with. The visitor's center does a great job explaining that aspect as well as the impact they had on the country as a whole. I was disappointed that some of the colonial historical information in their displays was biased, something not common at other NPS sites either. So while this site may be worth visiting if local, many of the sites in other states (e.g. Alabama) are more impactful when learning U.S. civil rights history.Written September 4, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a first class exhibit and should not be missed. The guides are very good. Plan on at least two hours and wear enough clothing as they keep the building very cool. The restaurant is very nice if you are hear over a meal time.Written September 25, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- I was able to make it to the top and back down in right at an hour. Everyone that I talked to was having a great time. I was a bit surprised with the amount of people with children and dogs that had made it to the top. I will definitely be back.Written April 10, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- I hope the people of Littler Rock appreciate this area. Once of the nicest riverfront parks I’ve ever seen:
~nice walking bridge
~could spend hours down here
Every city would benefit from a quality park like this. Well done Little Rock.Written September 2, 2023
- We went on July 3 so many things were closed but not the genuine hospitality and the Treasury area! The personalized attention to ensure we enjoyed our visit was appreciated. Too bad the cafe was closed or we would have lingered longer. It was blazing hot so we kept our outdoor look at the grounds and monuments to less than 30 minutes. Plenty of street parking that day. Good place to visit and be reminded of the best parts of our govements.Written July 17, 2023
- This is a hands on museum. If your kids are more into displays and exhibits, this may not be best for them. Almost everything is interactive. Stayed on site for 3 hours with zero boredom from the kids. Only reason we left was to grab lunch. It’s in an awesome spot downtown near a plethora of other businesses.Written September 2, 2023
- Nice walk across the Arkansas River. Bathrooms available in the parking lot and also at the park that is a mile away. Interesting - wouldn't go out of my way for it, but if in the area for a day or two, it's a good thing to do.Written March 28, 2023
- When planning our recent road trip, visiting here was definitely something we wanted to do. The documentation of the history of the building and grounds is first-rate, covering the erection of the building, its gradual deterioration, call for a new capitol building, and subsequent uses and renovations. We parked in the hotel garage next door. Don't skip this one!Written June 30, 2023
- I went on the distillery tour and tasting midweek in very small group. The tour guide was very friendly and gave a lot of information without sounding rehearsed or bored. It would be a fun place to visit with friends as part of a bachelor / bachelorette party or to celebrate at 21st birthday.
Make sure you try the Chocolate Malt Straight Bourbon. It is delicious.Written April 12, 2023
- It’s amazing the things you find when traveling. I was only here for a day but it was really nice. So many places to eat. I like that the chain places were not here. I could spend more time here and I wouldn’t have expected that.Written August 30, 2022
- I was so excited to go to this purse museum while we were in Little Rock and I was not disappointed.Written June 24, 2023
- We rented bikes and rode the trails as a family. 17 miles of beautiful trails along the river. So much to see! What a special treat in the heart of the city.Written July 5, 2023
- This museum has changed its name and reopened in April 2023. We made our first visit ever to Little Rock to see the collection there. Our first stop was the beautiful restaurant overlooking the park. The food was well presented and at a good price point.
There is no admission price. The gallery space was larger than expected and sort of hung thematically. A lot of the collection must include contemporary art, but the Degas dancer and the small Wyeths were charmers.
Parking is free and security was present.Written June 20, 2023
- Definitely something not to miss- fun and educational for all ages!
We were able to see how printing was done long ago and even got to print a sheet by manually working the press- it was really cool! We also got to watch someone make shoes with wooden tacks. Wow- they lasted really long, longer than metal tacks today. Lots of neat historical buildings to look at and go thru. Neat gift shop with come cool locally made thingsWritten June 13, 2023
- Very peaceful and beautiful! Love the greenery. My boyfriend and I were there until sundown and on the way back to car we saw at least 30-40 white tail deer :DWritten April 16, 2023
