Rogers Historical Museum  

About the Museum
 


The Rogers Historical Museum serves not only Rogers but all of Northwest Arkansas, a rapidly growing region with a rich heritage and a vibrant entrepreneurial spirit.  The RHM preserves that heritage and shares that spirit.  The recipient of many state and national awards, the Rogers Historical Museum is among the fewer than five percent of museums in the nation accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

There is a wealth of history to discover in Northwest Arkansas.  During the Civil War the area was the scene of what many historians consider the most important battle fought west of the Mississippi, the Battle of Pea Ridge.  At the turn of the 20th century the region was the leading apple-producing area in the nation.  After World War II, Northwest Arkansas became a center for the poultry and trucking industries and the birthplace of the world’s largest retailer.

At the RHM you can discover that history through family-friendly exhibits which include hands-on activities.  The RHM also offers a variety of programs and publications, and has a research library available for public use.  In addition, the museum broadens the cultural horizons of area residents through hosting traveling exhibits from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service, ExhibitsUSA, and other sources of high quality loan exhibitions.

General admission is free and hours are from 10a.m. to 5p.m., Monday through Saturday.  The museum is closed major holidays.
