Overview

The Eureka Springs Historical Museum is located in the heart of the historic district at 95 S. Main in Calif House, built in 1889. Its mission is to collect, preserve and exhibit the documents, photographs, and artifacts pertaining to the history of Eureka Springs, (Carroll County), and surrounding areas. See the colorful past of this unique town and the people who lived here. A fascinating collection of papers, photographs, mementos, official documents, home furnishings, and other artifacts are on display. We offer a newly renovated main floor with new exhibits that tell the story of Eureka Springs. We also have a second floor with more exhibits, as well as an Art Gallery that features local artists that helped start the artist boom in Eureka Springs. ESHM is a non-profit, 501(c)3 organization, and does not receive funds from state or city taxes. The museum's income is derived from admissions, donations, fundraisers, research fees, and gift shop sales, as well as memberships which are open and available to all interested persons. We are open from 9:30am-4:00pm Monday through Saturday, and 11:00am-4:00pm on Sunday.

Not a lot here considering what a big historical town it is. Needs more work and a more central location. Didn't even notice it until my 3rd trip to town

A small, but packed little museum. Contains the history of Eureka Springs & how it contributed to the war.

Eureka Springs has a long-time colorful history. There is no better place to learn about what made Eureka Springs one of America's most popular destinations in the early 1900's. From gangsters to ghosts, you'll learn it all.
