History & Culture

While our reputation for outdoor adventure is well-earned, there’s no shortage of attractions and activities that showcase our historic, artistic and cultural relevance. History buffs, you’ve come to the right place. Or, should we say, places? Check out Civil War battlegrounds, unlock the story of the U.S. Marshals Service, immerse yourself in Native American history and walk the same steps as some of our country’s civil rights pioneers. Patrons of the arts will be just as intrigued with some of the world’s top art collections at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville and Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts in Little Rock.
