Event Calendar


The Bella Vista Historical Museum will be opening on a limited basis starting on Saturday, October 31, 2020. We will be open during our usual hours of 1 pm to 5 pm, but only open on Saturdays and Sundays for now. 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.
