We visited the rather ancient looking Band Museum in the town of Pine Bluff and were fascinated by all the interesting instruments Mr. Horne had on display. The building was old and everything was dusty and not very well kept, but it was an interesting place. The soda fountain in the back was neat as well!
I take students there on a field trip every spring.

Jerry Horne (what a name for a band museum owner!) has been collecting instruments his entire life. His collection is quite amazing - with not only historically significant instruments, but some real odd-balls and some with great stories.
Jerry really puts his heart into the museum and is a walking encyclopedia on the subject.
Also - don't miss the antique soda fountain - great sodas and sweets.
