Recommended length of visit: <1 hour
Owner description: We love welcoming guests from all over the world to the first home of Bill and Hillary Clinton and where they were married. The Museum is situated in the beautiful Ozark Mountains in Fayetteville, Arkansas. This home has a special place in local, national, and international history. Bill Clinton took Hillary Rodham's hand in marriage 17 years before he would be elected President. The home's series of owners also have deep roots in local Arkansas history. The museum houses memorabilia of Clinton's early political career, including his campaigns for US House of Representatives and Arkansas Attorney General. Temporary and timely exhibits cover the history of Secretary Clinton's life in public service and her time in Arkansas. The collections include a faithful replica of Hillary's wedding dress and a timeline of the Clinton years in Fayetteville. Our museum store has books related to the Clinton legacy, Arkansas history, Arkansas politics, and the culture of the Ozarks. We also have mementos, gifts, and more for a keepsake of your visit. The Museum is open to the public and donations are welcome.

The focus here is not on President Clinton but on his years in Fayetteville when he was teaching at the University of Arkansas law school, running unsuccessfully for Congress), dating and marrying Hillary, etc. You'll see amateurish TV commercials from the 1970s, Hillary's wedding dress, etc. The Clintons were married in this house.

It was fun to tour the house, see all the Clinton memorabilia. There was a HRC wedding dress replica, lots of photos and campaign swag. The lady that runs the museum is so nice and knows a lot!

We were really glad we stopped here, the young woman who oversees the house and museum was informative and enthusiastic. She truly knows Fayetteville and gave us great information not only on the Clinton's but also on the University of Arkansas and the history of Fayetteville and the surrounding areas. It was a great stop on the road trip.

Very little information and the house and grounds were shabby.
The First Lady's garden may be nice some day, but not for a while.
