  • This is an old building with an incredible amount of historical artifacts . The exhibits span WWI action in the Philippines, WWII and the Korean War. The Korean War Memorial outside is also great. The houses around the museum are beautiful as well. Free!

  • Great museum. Historic building and grounds. Admission is free. A must see if you are in Little Rock!!
  • Great historical museum with lots of pieces to enjoy and lots to learn from. Thank you!
