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.

We toured the first house that the Clinton's owed as they started their political careers. For us it was very hard to find. It is very close to the U of A and students are everywhere. We missed it 3 times then finally found it. The house now has a large embellished razorback out front so it will be easier to find. The street name changes often so we finally had to call for help to get there and was directed to it. The house is small and most of it shows pictures of the Clintons. We did tour the garden dedicated to the First Ladies and it is small but nice. Not being political but not all First Ladies were represented. There is a $5.00 fee to tour...but I am sure the funds go to support the up-keep of the house and gardens. I did use the Clinton's bathroom which was a fun thing to go actually. Since he was a 2 term President it was worth seeing....just have good directions getting there.

Gave a good feel of the area and what it was like in the 1970's, The admission fee of $5 seemed high but I knew I wasn't like to be in the area again. You can use the potty That the Clintons used and it still had the same tile.

Historic little house with more than just Clintons (but there's a lot about Bill and Hillary). Seems like all who lived there were really successful. Great First ladies garden in the back of the house. Cute artistically decorated pig out front as part of Pigshibition, Ozark LIteracy project.

When you enter, basically all you see is the house. There is no furniture that belonged to the Clinton's, nor any artifacts or clothing. Seeing this from outside is enough...

Lots of room to improve...

From a historical point of view, it is a neat place to visit and remember that AR has a native son who became President. He was a young law professor when he and another law professor, Hiliary, were married here. Local folks have worked hard on the building and grounds to update them as they were when the Clintons first arrived here.
