  • Historic Arkansas Museum is worth the visit. Two activities, visit the free gallery and the houses of the origins of the nineteenth. The Gallery is very well done, different types of works are presented, photographs, paintings and furniture. An exhibition on Bowie knives is also presented. However, the best part of the exhibition is that concerning the three Native American tribes of Arkansas, the Caddo, Quapaw and Osage. Various objects are presented in detail, the history of these tribes before European presence until our days. Very informative and accessible even in English. The second part of the Museum, the tour of the houses is also very interesting. The tour is guided, the level of English available. Three buildings are visited by the group, a hotel/Tavern and two mansions. A beautiful dive in the heart of urban life on the frontier in the 1830s.

  • Finally last week had a free afternoon to spend a few hours at this great museum. We so enjoyed the guided tour of the houses on property and the displays inside are laid out nicely and well described...  more »

  • They have a suprisingly sized gallery that is quite varied. It's easy to spend a whole day here. From the buildings that are outside and the art inside it's a great place.
  • I always enjoy the exhibits here and the gift shop provides some great local products! you will not be disappointed!
  • Wonderful place to learn about early territorial AR with the outside restored buildings. Also, the museum is quite interesting, with not only Arkansas historical items, but also some excellent artwork from the past 100 years.
  • Runaway apprentices! Take the tour! Amy was our guide and the tour was full of great history, funny stories and interesting revelations on some common phrases. Do you know where the word "toaster" comes from? Check the website to see if they will have any reinactors on site. That was a great surprise!
  • Nice place to visit. Wish we had time to take the tour.
