If the real deal of a century ago is your thing, then Eureka Springs is the place for you!! The goodies this museum has saved is astounding & mind boggling! Definitely a must see for those who either loved the good ol' days or those who wish they could experience first hand, the good ol' days!!

If you like history this is a great place. It has most of the towns history and some neat artifacts. It was in an un air conditioned building so it was very warm. If you do any of the towns tours you will hear some of the same stories but there will be some differences. We really enjoyed it.

Another Google museum, printouts and information you could find on Google in five minutes. Just terrible, don't do it to yourself. Go to Chelsae's Corner Cafe and put the five bucks towards a pizza. (The Athens is awesome!) You'll be way happier.

This museum is $5 to look around. Its 2 stories so much like most of Eureka can be hard for some. I was intrigued by the bottled water advertising. We went through it in about 20 mins. They have a small lot next to it. The lady working there was not pleasant. I wouldn't bother asking her any questions, it... More

Stop at the museum at the beginning of downtown to learn more about the origins and history of Eureka Springs. It will make everything else you see for the rest of your trip more interesting and relevant. I say must go and go first!

Without a doubt the worst museum I have ever been to. If you had lived there all your life, you might enjoy looking at the pictures of founders of the community, etc. SURELY not worth the five dollar cost.

Had some good info on the development of Eureka Springs. Just your average local museum. Was ok. I thought the lady who was working was a little sour but maybe she was just having a bad day.

My husband and I started off our day in downtown Eureka Springs by stopping by for a tour of the museum. Admission is very reasonable ($5). There are 2 stories filled with displays covering many areas of Eureka Springs history. It was very interesting also to learn about some of the local artists in the area. We'd never been to... More
