Donate Items

We would love to have you as a docent, helping visitors experience the museum. Docents typically work one day a month, based on their desired schedules. Duties involve opening the museum, greeting visitors, answering questions about Bella Vista's history, taking payment for gift shop items and closing the museum.

If you prefer to assist us in other ways, perhaps you could work with us as a presenter, campfire manager or handyman . Just let us know how you'd like to help! Contact Jill Werner, our Volunteer Coordinator, to learn what's available. No obligation!

We are always happy to accept items, papers and books that are related to Bella Vista's fascinating history. If you prefer to keep an item rather than donate it,  we can scan or copy the item and return it to you.

We want to add more fencing around the Settler's Cabin, so monetary donations would be much appreciated.

Share Memories

If you grew up in Bella Vista, our Oral History Project would love to interview you. Your experiences and memories would add greatly to our knowledge of what our community was like in the past.

Donate Funds

We are a small, nonprofit museum, so we rely on donations to keep us open. Please consider donating some money to fund our continued operations. We are a 501(c)(3) organization, so all donations are tax-deductible.
