Come get a taste of the Arkansas State Fair at Nights at the Museum on Thursday, Oct. 3!

Food trucks will be at the Old State House Museum selling your fair favorites, like corn dogs and funnel cakes. You can also play carnival games for FREE and win prizes! Nights at the Museum is for adults 21 and older, so you get the fun of the fair … without having to keep track of the kids.  As always, adult beverages will be available to purchase.

Nights at the Museum takes place on the museum’s iconic front lawn on the first Thursday of each month seasonally, March-October. (In case of inclement weather, the event will be indoors at the museum.)

Arkansas State House Society – Friends of the Old State House Museum, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting OSHM and its programs, hosts the Nights at the Museum. The society invites young professionals to come early for a networking opportunity from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m.

General admission starts at 6 p.m. and costs $5; food and beverages will be available for purchase. Tickets may be purchased in advance at or at the gate.

The museum can validate parking at the DoubleTree hotel; metered parking near the hotel is free after 6 p.m.
