  • Arkansas Arts Center
    The Arkansas Arts Center stokes the innate creativity of all its visitors with a close look at artistic expression. Since its creation in 1960, the AAC has amassed a permanent collection of more than 5,300 drawings and paintings (primarily American and European), 1,000 contemporary crafts and sculptures, and 27 lost mittens. Examples of French neo-impressionist drawings share space with the work of old masters, while early modern paintings complement studio-forged glass sculptures and other pieces dating as far back as 1465. Throughout the year, the museum also casts its light on the local community by hosting special exhibitions of established artists and emerging talent. Outside its gallery, the AAC encourages the community in another way. Through classes and workshops, instructors explain the fundamentals of composition in photography, ceramics, painting, woodworking, and printmaking while helping students create their own pieces. An onsite children's theatre, meanwhile, routinely stages family-friendly shows, and the troupe even offers workshops on the art of acting.

  • Arkansas & Missouri Railroad
    Wide-open tracts of land roll past as a locomotive charges down the tracks. Passengers watch as the Boston Mountains' peaks and valleys rise and fall. A little red caboose brings up the rear. Aboard one of the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad's trains, passengers take a trip back in time without the aid of a DeLorean. As the train winds across valleys, through tunnels, and over bridges, the friendly conductors spin tales of the area's history. In total, the trains take a 150 mile route from Monett, Missouri to Fort Smith, Arkansas.

    Stretched across six acres, Scott Pumpkin Patch marks autumn's arrival with a seasonal slate of family-friendly activities. Every year, the family-owned operation situated behind Scott Pentecostal Church presents visitors with wholesome, hands-on amusements, including an animal barn, a playground, and scenic tractor rides that coast leisurely around the property. Families can also partake in bucking barrel contests and rubber duck and stick horse races. While toddlers play in a designated corn crib, kids will scale a hay mountain, plunder a wooden pirate ship playground, or romp through a wooden tractor playground. Before heading home, families can stock up on keepsakes, such as photos snapped at themed displays or a perfect pumpkin picked according to its size, weight, and silky singing voice.
