Located in the heart of downtown Little Rock the museum includes the town’s oldest building the circa-1827 Hinderliter Grog Shop along with other historic structures and a blacksmith shop.

Within the two-story museum there’s an array of Arkansas-crafted treasures including clothing, dolls, furniture, quilts and paintings. There’s also a gallery featuring contemporary Arkansas-made items from quilts to crafts and decorative fine arts.
