Charming little museum touching on a bit of everything about Texarkana and its history. Very enthusiastic and friendly staff and interactive display teaching nineties kids how to use a typewriter!

I wanted to go to this museum because Scott Joplin was from Texarkana. No one is totally sure if he was born in Arkansas or Texas. They had several items that were associated with Joplin, including one of his pianos. The exhibits were being reorganized...More
