  • Very interesting and well displayed artifacts and information. Good for at least and hour or two of educational entertainment. The separate sections of the museum how a fascinating variety of artifacts from a diverse selections of tribes, eras, and locations. Even artifacts from different states are on display. The gift shop also has a fine assortment of fun small items to remember the visit by. Will definitely visit again, most likely as an indoor Summer activity.
  • This place was great! Wonderful exhibits, and helpful staff. Free admission is nice. I think the best part is hunting for arrowheads. If you take the little ones, they will have no problem finding a few!
  • Excellent museum, free to the public. Free parking. Some originals, some effigies. Audio guide available. Take 10 minutes or all day, depending on how much information you want to absorb. Gift shop is full of great selections, with everything from books to jewelry.
  • First, you can't beat free. That aside, this museum of full of knowledge, and incredible artifacts. The museum also features a library full of reference material. The icing on the cake is the cultural appreciation events hosted by this museum. My wife and I learned first hand how to weave Cherokee double walled baskets. And they have a whole schedule of events like these all year! As a tourist stop, it can't be topped, especially if your trip coincides with an event. For those who live in the northwest Arkansas region, this is a treasure of history.
  • The staff is awesome. Great atmosphere. I take both of my kids here often. My son has Autism and it is great to have a place he can feel comfortable.
