Celebrate Arkansas’ Statehood today at Historic Arkansas Museum and Old State House Museum

Statehood Day

Statehood Day

The Old State House Museum and Historic Arkansas Museum will celebrate Arkansas’ Statehood today. A joint living history event, “The Quest for Statehood: From The Delta To The Hills,” will mark 179 years of statehood at both locations.

Costumed interpreters will transform The Old State House and Historic Arkansas Museum into the daily life and work of people representing all sections of 1836 Arkansas with games, talks and activities from 10 to 4 on June 13th.

Pick up a packet of clues about which historical figure you are, where you’re traveling from and why you are in Little Rock on this special day; use these clues to complete a task specific to your character and win a prize! You can participate as an individual, a couple or as a family! All activities are free and open to the public.

The museums are both agencies of the Department of Arkansas Heritage.
