The Arkansas National Guard Museum is the definitive collection of artifacts and history related to the Arkansas National Guard, as well as the state militias that preceded it. Located inside Camp Robinson military post in North Little Rock, the museum features military hardware from every era, from muskets and frontier rifles to field artillery and tanks. It also tells the history of the post which was established in 1917 as one of 32 cantonments constructed around the country after the U.S. entered the Great War. Camp Pike/Robinson has been in operation since.
Regular events and guest speakers illustrate the rich and transformative history of military service in Arkansas. Admission is free at the Arkansas National Guard Museum in North Little Rock.
As the museum is located inside a military post, visitors will need to show identification—either military identification or a driver’s license, as well as vehicle registration and proof of insurance—in order to get a day pass. Open weekdays, 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., and one weekend each month.
