Fort Smith, Arkansas
From frontier days to Elvis Presley's
famous Army-induction haircut, the
Fort Smith Museum of History offers a
fascinating walk back through time.
Only a few steps away from the Fort
Smith National Historic Site, the
museum operates in a historic
downtown building. There is no better
place to get a complete overview of
this frontier city's fascinating history.
But if you think a museum only offers
plaques and exhibits, you might want
to think again. This one is famous for
its root beer floats! The museum has
been recognized in several national
publications for its working Soda
Fountain where you can cool off on a
hot day with a nostalgic root beer float
or ice cream soda.
Plus, you can purchase trolley tokens
here and then catch the Fort Smith
Trolley right outside for a fascinating
ride back through time.
The Fort Smith Museum of History is located
at 320 Rogers Avenue in downtown Fort
Smith, adjacent to the Fort Smith National
The museum is open Tuesday through
Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. (September
through May) and Tuesday through Saturday
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 12
noon to 5 p.m. (June through August).
