Please note that all volunteers are fully Covid vaccinated. Masks are not required in the museum, but we have them available and you are welcome to wear one if you prefer.  As always, admission is free.


Elephants Have Arrived!

We have gained access to a large private elephant collection, some of which is now available for purchase in our gift shop.  All elephant collectors should come take a look!


City-wide Garage Sale

The Museum is making available parking spaces in the grassy area around the Settler's Cabin on the Museum grounds for individuals who would like to participate in the City-wide garage sale on April 28 & 29 but who don’t want to have a garage sale at home.  Volunteer Dustie Meads is coordinating this project as a fundraiser for the Museum.  The rent will be $25 for one space, $45 for two spaces which will cover both days of the sale.  Refunds will be given only in case of rain.  Set up will start each day at 8 a.m. with shutdown by 5 p.m.  Vendor vehicle parking will be east of the booth area.


The museum will be open the same hours both days.   Anyone interested in renting one or more spaces is invited to contact Dustie at 479-381-8546 for details.


Greeting Cards

We are happy to announce the addition of these really neat greeting cards to our gift shop.  They are hand made by Bella Vista resident Nan Delaney, and are now available for most holidays and birthdays.  Stop in and get yours before the supply runs out!


The museum is currently looking for volunteers to work a once-a-month shift as docents (staff members). You can learn more about being a docent here.
