Are you looking for something to do on a rainy day?
If so, the city is home to several unique museums where you can explore an array of fascinating exhibits.
Here are a few favorites:
Historic Arkansas Museum
Nestled downtown, the Historic Arkansas Museum collects an array of items representing frontier Arkansas. The museum opened in 1981, and it features daily performances by living history actors who depict the owners and workers of the historic homes found on site. More than 70,000 people visit the museum every year, and in addition to exploring the historic structures, they can also enjoy permanent exhibits such as We Walk in Two Worlds. This display tells the story of Arkansas' first people: the Caddo, Osage, and Quapaw tribes, and nearly 160 objects are on view including clothing and pottery.
Mosaic Templars Cultural Center
Found on historic West Ninth Street, the Mosaic Templars Cultural Central is a fascinating museum that strives to interpret and celebrate African American history and culture in Arkansas from 1870 through the present day. The self-guided tours are free of charge, and there are a variety of exhibits including A City Within A City, Entrepreneurial Spirit, and A Building for the Community.
ESSE Purse Museum
As one of only three purse museums on the globe, the ESSE Purse Museum is quickly becoming a cultural hub for female heritage and storytelling in central Arkansas. Tickets cost just ten dollars, and visitors can explore both permanent and temporary exhibitions. A Century of Women and Handbags (1900 - 1999) is not to be missed as the museum boasts it offers an intimate look at the evolution of the 20th-century American woman through her handbags and the items she carried.
