Historic Arkansas Museum
The Historic Arkansas Museum is a facility covering Arkansas frontier history and modern history, giving your group some basic Arkansas state and geography information not found anywhere else. The museum is located on historic grounds, as you will see once you step foot on the grass and visit the antebellum neighborhood it is located in. From here your group can see the oldest home still standing in Little Rock, as well as the site where the famous William Woodruff once printed the Arkansas Gazette. You will easily see within your strolls and lessons why this site was formerly the Arkansas Territorial Restoration facility.
While here your group will have the chance to interact with living history characters around every corner and see first hand how early residents of Arkansas lived as they explore Arkansas made art and artifacts. There are four exhibit galleries within the museum, featuring everything from contemporary Arkansas art in the stunning Trinity Gallery to the very popular Bowie Knife history exhibit within the permanent display exhibit. You will also have the chance to explore original restored antebellum homes including the 1827 Grog Shop, the oldest business in the state! Once you’ve seen all of the fun exhibits be sure to head over to the on-site theater to see the award-winning intro video describing the annual heritage events, festivities, and living history events that take place here. You can even head over to the museum store to pick up your very own heritage quilt and contemporary crafts!
