The Original Walton's 5 and 10 Tour
Friday, March 7th 3:00-6:00 pm
While one half of MSSA attendees tour Wal-Mart sign manufacturing facility, the other half will tour the Wal-Mart Visitors Center in Bentonville which features the original Walton's 5 and 10, opened on May 9, 1950. A novel idea at the time, Sam Walton's store was the first self-service variety store in Arkansas. Here, along North Main a self-guided tour leads visitors by shelves of retro toys, candies, and souvenirs. Getting a true feel of shopping in the 50's, the Welcome Center features original floor tiles and a 50's tin paneled ceiling. An exhibit including some of Sam Walton's personal effects is a part of the tour of the interior. Outside you'll find Sam's original 1979 Ford F-150 pickup truck.

The Museum of Native American History Tour/Dinner
Friday, March 7th 6:30-8:30 pm
"Walk Through America's Past", where you will view a glimpse into what life was like for America's first inhabitants. The museum is divided into five different time periods that will guide you through the constant changing lives of the Native Americans, as seen through their artifacts. Displays feature relics that date from over 14,000 years old to historic times. As you learn about America's first inhabitants, dinner will be available for attendees. Tour plus dinner with open beer/wine bar - $25 fee.
