Fodor's Review

Multimedia interactive exhibits at Little Rock Central High School's visitor center, across the intersection from the school, commemorate the courageous efforts of "The Little Rock Nine" —a group African American students who, in 1957, were entrolled at this formerly all-white school only after federal troops were called in to protect them. There is also a commemorative garden. Because the school is still a fully operating high school, visitors are strictly prohibited from touring it unless they have a reservation and are under the supervision of a national park ranger.
