My parents have lived outside Eureka Springs for over five years, but I have never really known very much about the city or the area. This cute little museum has a variety of artifacts from the city and anecdotes about the happenings since its founding. The displays upstairs could do with a bit of cleaning and seems a bit overloaded... More

The Historical Museum is a wonderful little museum that houses all kinds of Eureka Springs memorabilia, local art and artifacts, photos, books, etc. It is a very small admission fee and worth way more than you pay.

We had some time to kill while waiting to get in to a nearby restaurant, so went into the museum. I loved reading all about the history of the area! Very interesting. Neat to see old pictures and artifacts, too.

Lots of information about the history and development of the town. Also includes a small art gallery of some excellent paintings.

It has a very eclectic collection. Both of local interest and outside the region. I have visited many regional museums and this was one of the better ones.

You rather feel they don't know what they have in this little museum. There's a lot to see, and you're rather left on your own with little interpretation, but it is really worth 45 minutes to look around.

Don't expect a lot here. My hometown where there is nothing to attract & is a much smaller town has a much nicer museum than this & it is free. They charge $5 here & I hope it is going to improving it, but I know what it costs to run small museums for utilities alone so I am sure... More

Very nice displays of the town's fascinating history. Small scale and friendly. Located just as you come into the downtown area from the south. Easy walk from there through the downtown area.
