The movie about Bill Clinton’s life was very moving. This is a great place in a great town. Everyone was very helpful and the historical railroad items were very interesting.

Exhibits on the history of Hope, railroad industry, and President Clinton. Excellent stop on the way to visit President Clinton's boyhood home, which is a short walk down the street. Easily visited in less than one hour.

stepped in here looking for directions to Clinton birthplace. There are lots of pictures and Clinton memorabilia. The lady at the counter seemed very bored and was very talkative.

This is a great little spot to stop and read about some history on the railroad. Plus the Amtrak railway service stops in the morning and night daily.

Cute little Visitors Center in the middle of Hope, next to the railroad tracks. They've got exhibits on Clinton and Huckabee and just about any place in Arkansas you might even think about visiting. Nice people too. We stopped in after Crater of Diamonds and...More

Little museum at the railroad station. This poor town needs some Hope. Nice little spot to stop and get a little history.

I had a great time visiting this museum/visitor center. The history of small towns is a major interest of mine so I enjoyed all the early 1900's images and text. And it is in the Train Station with trains passing every few hours. Amtrak stop.
