A Visit to Cultural & Educational Arkansas

Museums & Cultural Centers in the Natural State

Arkansas is full of museums, galleries and cultural centers thanks to big cities like Little Rock and small-town escapes like Jonesboro. Discover everything from the diverse exhibits of the Blytheville Heritage Museum and Faulkner County Museum to the Oval Office replica of the Clinton Presidential Library and Center in Arkansas' capital city.

The University of Arkansas has a network of campuses found throughout the Natural State. Campuses – complete with museums like the Arkansas State University Museum – can be found in Arkansas cities like Fayetteville, Pine Bluff, Batesville and of course Little Rock. You can even check out the University of the Ozarks in Clarksville in northern Arkansas.

A new addition to cultural Arkansas is the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville. Set in northern Arkansas in the northwest corner of the state, this fresh cultural center is set 30 miles north of Fayetteville and 40 miles west of Eureka Springs.

The Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art features collections of colonial, 19th century, modern and contemporary artworks unique to Arkansas’ network of galleries and art centers. The 120-acre location of Crystal Bridges encompasses walking paths throughout the grounds, including the Orchard Trail, Rock Ledge Trail, and the ever-appropriate Art Trail – another ideal package in cultural Arkansas.

Don’t miss more cultural attractions like the Opera in the Ozarks at Inspiration Point in Eureka Springs, or the Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center for those literary lovers visiting Piggott. Whether exploring cultural Arkansas by foot, car, or even motorcycle, the many museums, galleries and nature centers are sure to inspire and enlighten during your time in the Natural State.
