The Faulkner County Museum is based on the concept
that only by preserving and presenting our past can we achieve a wise
perspective on our future. Faulkner County's recorded history begins in
1873, but years before parts of the area were explored and settled by
non-natives. And thousands of years before that, Native Americans hunted
and fished in the area, leaving evidence of their presence.
The central theme underlying the museum exhibits is the range of
environmental conditions found in Faulkner County and how the
inhabitants, from prehistoric to the present, adapted to local
conditions. The exhibits include artifacts, equipment, household items,
clothing, historic and modern crafts, and photographs. These materials
are arranged in a series of educational, attractive and self-explanatory
exhibits which are combined on the unifying theme of everyday life in
Exhibits at the museum are constantly being updated and new items are
added periodically. Even if you have visited in the past, undoubtedly
there's something new and different to see.
Monday - Thursday 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
