Great venue for children's theatre. Since the remodel, the theatre is a nice place to introduce your family to the arts. I have also attended a catered wedding here...It was really nice.

Very nice museum, with a diverse art collection and wonderful special exhibits. We live in Houston but make a point of visiting this museum when we are in Little Rock. The museum is very nicely set up so that visitor can see the art without backtracking or getting lost. The museum is also family friendly and houses a children's theatre with regular shows. Parking is easy and there is a lovely park next to the museum.
