Historic Arkansas Museum  - 200 E. Third Street, Little Rock AR



Additional Event Details

In celebration of Arkansas’s Territorial Bicentennial, our Spring Break activities will focus on settling this state. The museum’s historic block has countless stories of making a life in early Arkansas, from just after becoming a territory to a decade after Statehood. Visitors can spend each day learning about a different person’s path to Arkansas. We will cook Pioneer food, make hands-on crafts, and share a few pioneer skills.

Play the game of skittles, meet historic characters, make a print on the mini-press, see what’s cooking in the Brownlee Kitchen and watch a textile demonstration.

Tuesday: Jessie Hinderliter

Make whirlygigs, meet a historic character, see what’s cooking in the Brownlee Kitchen and learn about grog shops.
