Shiloh Museum of Ozark History

A regional history museum focusing on the Northwest Arkansas Ozarks. The museum takes its name from the pioneer community of Shiloh, which became Springdale in the 1870s.

Most of what you’ll see at the museum highlights the real shapers of Ozark history—the everyday men, women, and children who lived in our towns and rural communities. Along with exhibits, you can explore six historic buildings on the museum grounds. We also have a research library with a collection of over 500,000 photographs of Ozark life.


Monday through Friday
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

If you have trouble reaching us by phone, please email us at shiloh@springdalear.gov.

Until further notice, we are open Monday through Friday only. Beginning August 7, 2021 we will be open on Saturdays from 10 am to 5 pm.

Please note the following changes that apply to everyone:

  • If you have flu-like COVID symptoms (such as fever or chills and shortness of breath), please stay home for now.
  • Masks are not required, but we encourage visitors to use the honor system and wear a mask if you have not been vaccinated. No mask? No problem. We’ll provide you with a free, one-time-use mask.
  • Please leave personal belongings and strollers in your car. Purses are okay.

Social Distancing

  • Please practice social distancing while in the  museum. If you visit with children, keep them nearby and socially distanced. If you visit with a  group, please stay together.
  • Restroom use will be limited to one person at a time or one family/group. Ask for a restroom key.
  • Our store is closed because social distancing is impossible there.
  • If you’re a researcher, please email, call, or mail in research or photo questions and requests, due to the small size of our library and the inability to social distance.

You Should Know

  • All museum staff and volunteers will wear face masks when working with school groups.
  • You can help us by providing feedback about our COVID-related practices. Thanks!
