Rogers Historical Museum
Our Mission is to enrich lives through education, experience, and exploration of our heritage. The Rogers Historical Museum, an American Alliance of Museums accredited institution, is proud to be a department of the City of Rogers and pleased to serve all of the people of Northwest Arkansas. We are supported by two outstanding non-profit organizations: the Friends of the Rogers Historical Museum and the Rogers Museum Foundation. The Museum is governed by a five-member commission, which is appointed by the mayor and approved by the city council and is responsible for making and maintaining policies, standards, and operational continuity. Daily operations are managed by our 9 member staff, with support from a loyal group of volunteers.
