A Beauty on it Sells

Historic Arkansas MuseumI decided that since I love Barbie and I love travel that I was going to make Barbie a part of my travels. I am going to try once a month to have a Barbie Wednesday. Today is the first one. This Wednesday we went to visit our friend, Marsha Stone’s, “A Beauty on it Sells” exhibit. It is part of the Historic Arkansas Museum‘s Eclectic Collectors series. Marsha collects various things and this collection is advertisements from the 1800s and Victorian era. There were so many pretty things from matchboxes to firecrackers to chairs. The exhibit is open now through Jan. 5. Historic Arkansas Museum

We also stopped by the Old State House to see the Different Spokes exhibit. It is a history of cycling in Arkansas. It was kind of cool. I am not a biker but seeing some of the old fashioned bikes was pretty cool. They had a wooden bike. I didn’t think that it was possible to ride a wood bike but I guess you can. They also had a the Bycykel 1. It was a gift to President Clinton from Copenhagen, Denmark. ┬áMountain biking was started by Buffalo Soldiers in 1896 when they traveled from Montana to Yellowstone National Park. Different Spokes is open until February 2016. You should also check out the Lights! Camera! Arkansas! exhibit.
