At the Historic Arkansas Museum I walked through the various galleries which contained an eclectic collection of exhibits – art from Arkansas artists, an exhibit devoted to firefighters, history of the Bowie knife, and the Caddo, Osage, and Quapaw in Arkansas. After visiting the museum galleries, I went to the historic grounds, for which a small fee is charged, containing a restored half-block of the original city of Little Rock and a 1850s farmstead. In the historic ground there were docents dressed in period costumes who provided an overview of life in early Arkansas. In front of the museum is a sculpture – Party for Peg – created by Arkansas artist Alice Guffey Miller in tribute to museum volunteer Peg Smith. My visit to this museum was well worth the time I spent there.
