Visitors who want an up-close look at the living quarters of one of America's most notable literary figures should take a trip to the restored home and barn-studio of Ernest Hemingway. The Hemingway-Pfeiffer Museum and Educational Center is located in Piggott, Arkansas. The property, originally owned by the family of Hemingway's second wife, was where the notable author wrote portions of A Farewell to Arms as well as several novellas in the 1930s.

The Arkansas Arts Center resides in the historic MacArthur Park of Little Rock. A leading cultural institution for the state, the center has an internationally renowned collection of works on paper, both American and European, that includes drawings from the Renaissance to modern times.
