The open-air portion of the museum represents the state's frontier period of the early 1800s. The Brownlee House, McVicar House, Hinderliter Grog Shop, and Woodruff Print Shop may be toured on your own or through a guided tour. One-hour guided tours are led by costumed interpreters and cost $2.50/person. The Grog Shop (c.a. 1834) is Little Rock's oldest house. In 1835, Arkansas' last Territorial legislature met here. The Woodruff Print Shop is the original site of the Arkansas Gazette, the oldest newspaper west of the Mississippi River. The Historic Arkansas Museum is open Monday through Saturday from 9am to 5pm and on Sundays from 1 to 5pm. For more information, call 501/324-9351 or visit www.arkansashistory.org.
