The museum is now open on Saturdays and Sundays during our normal hours of 1-5 pm. We hope that you will join us, but you must wear a mask and we ask that you keep your group down to a smaller size so we can observe proper distancing with other groups. As always, admission is free.

Happy Holidays Cards!

The museum gift shop is now carrying vintage Bella Vista "Happy Holidays" note cards. The fronts of the cards have four different scenes on them  from old Bella Vista and say Happy Holidays at the bottom. They are blank inside for your own holiday messages. There is a limited supply and when these cards are gone, they are gone!
