No museum is complete without their very own ghost!
Our museum serves as a cultural resource that preserves the region's history while connecting us to our ancestors and our past for generations to come.  Phillips County is steeped in important history, and memories of those times have been preserved and exhibited through impressive collections for all to experience.  The museum is located in a charming historic building and listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

While this website is a good place to learn about the Museum and our local area, it is no substitute for a visit to explore the wonderful exhibits on display and to lose yourself in nostalgia of long ago.  Awaiting you are artifacts of Native American Indians, the Civil War, Thomas Edison, Mark Twain, fine/decorative arts, military uniforms, documents and so much more. 

Admission is free so visit us soon!
