Fort Smith Museum of History - Arkansas
If you are looking for a good indoor activity during the cold weather, I highly recommend the Fort Smith Museum of History in downtown Fort Smith.
Located adjacent to the Fort Smith National Historic Site, the museum provides a fascinating walk through time. Among the exhibits is a section on the Civil War in Fort Smith that is well worth seeing.
In addition, the museum has a nice display on the history of Fort Chaffee, the 20th century army post at Fort Smith, as well as other aspects of the community's military history.
You can obtain further information (including hours, directions, etc.) by visiting their website at www.fortsmithmuseum.com.
