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.


The Bella Vista Historical Society has announced the publication of a new pictorial history book, authored by Xyta Lucas and Dale Phillips, with photograph assistance by Jack Kellogg. The book includes photos dating from the early 1900s through 2020. It is scheduled for release by Arcadia Publishing Company on April 5, 2021, but is available now for preorder on Amazon. The project is a fundraiser for the museum, where all royalties from the book sales will be directed. It will also be available after April 5 in the museum gift shop, at Barnes & Noble, and other local sites. Book signings will be scheduled at future dates. If you’d like to place a pre-order now, go to and search under books for “Bella Vista Images of America”.
