The Phillips County Museum has quite a collection of objects from the past of Helena, Arkansas. The Civil War displays are great and especially the Battle of Helena July 4, 1863 diorama and the Confederate Cemetery diorama are worth the visit. The museum docent is quite friendly and knows the history and stories of Helena.

This battle covers the history of Helena, Arkansas. With special emphasis on Helena's role in the Civil War. There is a cool diorama and historical artifacts. There are two rooms with and upstairs in one. This museum takes less than 1 hour to tour, a good stop if you're in Helena.

There is a large diorama... More

Interesting local history museum with an informed docent to fill you in on the background of the exhibits, well worth a visit if passing through this area. The town itself is fairly decrepit as are many within the Mississippi Delta.
