While on a recent trip to Arkansas for business, we visited the Daisy Airgun Museum in downtown Rogers, Arkansas.

This is a picturesque little part of town and was like taking a step back in time.

We walked the streets and found the museum sitting on a corner, with a cute little corner entrance door. It’s real easy to find.

Daisy Airgun Museum Self-Guided Tour

The Daisy airgun museum is a lot like what you’d expect. It’s a walk through time, a historical museum of the life of the airgun industry.

When you enter the museum you’ll find handheld wands with speakers that will guide you throughout your trip back in time.  Alternatively, you can use your smartphone.

Near each display is a code, just aim and click! You will learn literally everything you could ever imagine about the airgun industry.

This includes how Daisy began, where they got their start (was it in Rogers?), and everything all the way up to the present day airgun industry.

From handguns to rifles, you’ll see and experience it all!

The guns themselves are amazing.

You get to see everything from the very beginning of Daisy airguns, from prototypes to wooden guns, and then all the way up through today’s Red Ryder BB Gun.

Yes, that Red Ryder, “You’ll shoot your eye out!

A Christmas Story Display

Of course, there’s an A Christmas Story display at the Daisy Airgun Museum.

I think we’re all very familiar with this movie, and it’s nice to learn more about the story behind the Red Ryder.

Take a few minutes to stop and check it out! You’ll get to feast your eyes on an “official Red Ryder, carbine-action; two-hundred shot range model air rifle, with a compass in the stock and this thing which tells time!” as Ralphie would say.

What The Daisy Airgun Museum Was Missing

The one thing that the airgun museum was missing was a shooting range.

You know those carnival games where you stick a few quarters in and everything starts to move around and pop up from nowhere?

Aim and shoot! I really thought the airgun museum would have something like this inside.

I could have spent half a day shoving quarters into that machine. Alas, there is no airgun games at the museum.

Maybe it’s something they should consider in the future — I bet it would attract a lot of people!

Daisy Airgun Museum Admission Price & Gift Shop

At the end of the walk-through tour, you can find a map with pushpins.

Don’t forget to add your location. This map started in 2019 and Katie and I were the first ones from New Hampshire to put a pin in our state! Woohoo!

Before leaving, make sure you take a good look around the gift shop and buy some goodies.

If you’re traveling like we were, they will even ship your purchase to your home!

Finally, return the wand and pay the admission – it’s only $2 per person, but of course you can give a nice donation to the museum there as well.

There is a whole lot more to see, read, and hear about Daisy Airguns than you’re getting here in my blog post.

I’m not one to spoil the fun, so you’ll have to head over to downtown Rogers, Arkansas, and stop in to see all the cool things for yourself!
