“Historic Arkansas Museum”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Woth the 2.50 admission price. Very interesting and well worth spending time at the museum. The inside portion has 7 exhibit halls that we did not have time to tour. This part is free to the public. We will definitely be back.

“Un-necessarily Boring With Less Than Helpful Staff”
Reviewed October 3, 2012

Arkansas' state oriented attractions sometimes feel like they were hodge podged together and that they aren't developed enough. This place definitely seems that way. They staff seemed more than bored, and the material was presented in an extremely boring way. I realize that history can be dry at times, but employ a few artists and make the place a little more creative for gosh sakes.

“Interesting History Lesson”
Reviewed September 6, 2012

The tour starts out with a short film. The you can take a tour of the old houses in Arkansas and browse the exhibits. The tour guide we had was very knowledgeable and answered our questions. Very interesting history lesson.

“A surprise”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

I wandered into the Historic Arkansas Museum on a day when it was 108 degrees. Fortunately, the outside structures were all air conditioned and our docent guide did a good job of explaining the history of the area.
