  • We have been to many Native American Museums over the years, and this one packs a punch for the limit space that they have.  more »
  • The museum has multiple rooms, each featuring one element of Native American life -- arrow heads, maps, cooking utensils, feather head dress, beaded decoration on clothing and jewelry, calendars using...  more »
  • Definitely a five star museum.....and it's free! Loved the trumpeting Wooly Mammoth at the entrance. The audio wand helped guide you through the various periods of time. It's really an outstanding mus...  more »

  • So many cool things to see. The kids loved digging for arrows and checking out the gift shop. The shop was like an extension of the museum because of all the neat art work put into jewelry and other merchandise. All the kids especially loved having their own self guided tour wand. Can't wait to go back.
  • Nice museum, Great thing to do with a big or small group, with kids or just adults. They have a great easy to use self guided tour device. The Kids (and adults) loved hunting for arrow heads at the end of the tour. Gift shop has lots of cool things for everyone.
  • Amazing collection of historical artifacts. The self guided audio tour is well done and very informative. Definitely give yourself 1+ hours to listen to the audio as you go through the museum. Highly recommend!
  • Small enough to see everything in a couple of hours or less. Lots of artifacts, arrowheads and pottery. We'll worth a visit. Kids will enjoy the arrowhead hunt outside.
  • This is a fantastic attraction and one that I would rank as a "must see" in Arkansas. From the outside, you would never believe what an extensive collection of native american art and artifacts is on display inside. In addition, the high quality of the displays and the level of information available is very impressive. They even provide hand held electronic devices that you can carry with you on your self guided tour that elaborate on the information provided at the displays. The staff here is very friendly and professional and quite knowledgeable of the subject matter. And for the icing on the cake, there is no admission fee, just a donation box if you would like to contribute!!!
