Old State House Museum

Old State House Museum

The Old State House Museum is a designated National Historic Landmark, though it is probably best known as the location for President Bill Clinton’s 1992 and 1996 election-night celebrations. This Greek-revival structure overlooking the Arkansas River houses a multimedia museum of Arkansas state history. Permanent exhibits include: the history of the building, Arkansas women in history, the state’s governors and the inaugural gowns for their wives, as well as period rooms that show interior design from the past.

We hope you enjoy our work.
