Tucked away from the city square is a magnificent tribute to native american. The museum is arranged to begin very early in time and moves to current times. Some of the worlds best archeological finds are represented here. Just a beautiful place.

What started as one boy's Boy Scout arrowhead collection has grown into a nationally recognized free museum of prehistoric artifacts to the late 1800's. Headphones make touring well organized and informative. All ages will enjoy their visit.More

Very neat museum with lots of things to look at. Staff was very friendly and helpful. The audio wands used for the self-guided tour are very helpful for understanding the displays. A must see in Northwest Arkansas.

Small museum with lots of arrowheads and Native American tools. Interesting and enjoyable. Search for arrowheads outside and pick out your favorites to buy, it's cheaper than buying the ones they sell inside and they're bigger.
