We really enjoyed the trolley ride and the amazing history lessons! Operator 22 took us on the trolley ride and he was absolutely fantastic! His personal knowledge and experiences in Fort Smith added even more to an all ready fascinating trolley tour of "old" Fort Smith.

The Fort Smith Trolley is a real hoot and an exceptional experience. A rattling, clackly, wobbly, informative ride into Fort Smith history. A unique opportunity to experience yet another memorable slice of Arkansas and Fort Smith history. If a ride on a 90 year old trolley isn’t enough, there are well done historical presentations done along the route covering local... More

Last time I visited the museum, they were celebrating 2 things: Judge Parker's birthday and Halloween with the annual Western Arkansas Ballet performance of Thriller. I've been to the museum several times for these events. They are fun, entertaining, interesting and educational.

I never knew this was here. I took my nephew to check this out and he loved it. I never knew we had this downtown.

The trolley ride was fun, but very, very short. We expected some sort of ride through town at the least, and maybe an audible tour guide, but we just backed up the equivalent of two blocks, stopped, and came right back, but nice weather and the trolley was open air. It was interesting to see how the trolley was powered... More
