  • 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 »

  • Nice museum. Indoor section is free, out buildings require a small donation. Really good display of Bowie knives I'm first floor gallery.
  • Very informative. They had period actors who really knew their history about the place. The gift shop has a lot of really neat stuff. Their galleries were full of interesting things.
  • This historic preservation museum is a rare opportunity to dip into early American--and Arkansas--life and culture!
  • Terrific place. Don't miss 2nd Friday art walk. Great bands every month.
  • Nice little place. There is 3 buildings to go thru, and a period actor that gives a little talk. Just $2.50 for an adult. Hop on the trolley passing by. $2 for an all day pass. Hear some history and ask questions. Cars go by about every 20 mins
