Visiting the Museum

The Historic Arkansas Museum is a historic site museum of Arkansas's frontier days. Five pre-Civil War houses, on their original block, are restored to antebellum appearances, so you can learn about life pre-Civil War in Arkansas. Guided tours of the historic houses encounter actors portraying original residents, making it easy to step back in time and learn about the history of Arkansas.

The Historic Arkansas Museum center features the museum's outstanding collection of Arkansas-made decorative, mechanical, and fine arts objects in six galleries. You'll also find a wonderful museum store, living history theater, educational areas and much more.

The Historic Arkansas Museum, an agency of the Department of Arkansas Heritage, is accredited by the American Association of Museums.
