Baker Hospital Exhibit

We’re thrilled to present our new temporary exhibit showcasing the infamous Baker Hospital! This short-lived venture only operated inside the Crescent Hotel from 1937 to 1940, but left quite the impression with its unconventional medical treatments.

The exhibit features artifacts, images, and rare documents highlighting the life and tumultuous career of Norman Baker and his phoney cancer hospital here in Eureka Springs, PLUS original art by Sean Fitzgibbon from his stunning new graphic novel “What Follows is True – Crescent Hotel."

Take the Tour

A self-guided tour through our museum illustrates the history of the healing springs and the founding of our city. Permanent and temporary exhibits depict the indigenous people who first discovered the springs, the hardships of pioneer life, the Victorian renaissance that transformed Eureka Springs into a world-renowned health resort, and the arts and counter-culture movement that shaped us into the “town where misfits fit."
