Our staff suggests spending a half day exploring and learning at Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site.
Plan ahead and reserve an available ranger-led tour that goes by Little Rock Central High School. View the exhibits at the park's Visitor Center, learn about the Little Rock Nine, watch the park's interpretive film, and explore the other historic buildings and outdoor activities within the park. Earn your Junior Ranger badge by completing activities within the park. Stamp your passport book in our visitor center to capture memories from your visit to our site.
If you have less time or visit on a non-tour day, you can still watch the park's interpretive film, browse the exhibits in the Visitor Center, walk on the grounds of Little Rock Central High School, and take a self-guided walk to the Commemorative Garden, the Elizabeth Eckford Bus Bench and the Magnolia Mobil Gas Station.
Other sites in Little Rock related to the story of Central High School and the Little Rock Nine include Paul Laurence Dunbar High School (now a Magnet Middle School), the Daisy and L.C. Bates home and the Testament statues on the grounds of the Arkansas State Capitol.
