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 Saturday
10:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m.

Notice of Temporary Closing

Effective Monday, March 16, the Shiloh Museum will be closed to the public and is suspending programs, events, public meeting room use, and outreach through the end of April. We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and plan to determine in mid-April, dependent on the public health risk, whether to resume programming and reopen the museum.

This is especially important, as the Shiloh Museum’s visitor demographics cluster around vulnerable older visitors, out-of-state travelers, and children, all of whom we want to protect. We also want to provide adequate notice to the organizers of the more than fifty meetings and events scheduled at the museum through the end of April.

We understand this situation is not ideal and apologize for any inconvenience it may cause, but the public’s health and the health of our staff are our priority.

While the museum is closed, we encourage you to explore the online resources here on our website. And since museum staff members will continue to work during the closure, researchers may continue to call or email the museum with questions about our regional history.

Thank you for your patience. Stay healthy.
