what we do

Preserving the past for the future through collection, display, and education.

About Us

The city of Bentonville’s history is both long and rich.  From early Native American settlements, a successful agriculture industry, the Battle of Pea Ridge, to the growth of Walmart-there are many stories to be shared.  The Bentonville Historical Museum aims to preserve the past for the future through collection, display, and education for residents and visitors alike.

The Bentonville History Museum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
