The Eureka Springs Historical Museum offers self-guided tours that showcase the history of our charming city, with exhibits on both the first and second floors of the restored 1889 Calif House. We look forward to your visit and the opportunity to share the history of Eureka Springs with you.
We ask that all visitors, regardless of vaccination status, please follow these safety measures to protect everyone’s health. If you are sick or feeling unwell, please stay home. If you are at increased risk of severe illness, you may also want to consider staying home. Visitors who do not follow these guidelines may be asked to leave.
The Eureka Springs Historical Museum is located near the south entrance to the town, on HWY-23 (Main Street).
Our address is:
95 S. Main Street, Eureka Springs, AR 72632
One of the best ways to get around town is also one of the oldest! Our earliest trolleys were actually pulled by mules, and by 1899 electric streetcars were installed.
The public transit “trolley" buses that you see today follow many of the same routes, and are a relaxing way to get from one part of town to another without having to locate parking at each stop. Trolley routes are designated by color, with the Red Route covering the downtown historic loop. All-day passes are available from Eureka Springs Transit.
Admission includes 1-hour of free parking at the museum, but spaces are limited.
Paid parking is available directly across the street using the ParkMobile App, zone # 1636.
Additional paid parking lots are located on Main Street. These privately owned parking lots are enforced 24 hours a day.
City-owned parking lots are located on Main Street by the Eureka Springs City Hall and Auditorium, and utilize the Passport Parking App.
City-owned metered spots are free after 6pm.
The 1889 Calif House that houses the museum and its collection is a historic multi-level structure with no elevator. There is a single step on the front porch to access the entrance. Otherwise, the first floor is accessible to visitors using strollers, scooters, walkers, wheelchairs, and mobility devices. To view exhibits on the second floor, visitors must climb stairs. Please inquire at the front desk if you will only be touring the first floor of the museum, and we can provide discounted admission.
Pets (except service animals) are not permitted in the museum. Emotional support animals are not permitted in the museum. Service dogs that have been specially trained to assist a person with a disability are welcome in the museum.
Photography for noncommercial use is permitted inside the museum, unless otherwise posted. For the safety of our visitors and collections, the use of tripods, monopods, and selfie sticks is not permitted at any time. Working members of the media must obtain permission from the museum director prior to filming.
