Outreach

The Reading Brigade Reading Program!

The Reading Brigade is an after school community outreach reading program targeting K-5th grade students. The program takes a non-traditional approach to introducing students to military history, both in the trenches and on the home front.  The program is a donation-funded project that allows the museum education staff to provide the program at community centers in Little Rock.

Off-site visits

With the ever increasing difficulty in taking classes on field trips, the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History can take any of our programs that we offer to your class.  Along with educational programs, museum staff can visit your classroom to discuss military history topics. 
Off-site visits with a 25 mile radius of downtown Little Rock are free of charge.  Distance traveled beyond 25 miles from the museum will incur a fee.
