Helena Museum of Phillips County

The Helena Museum of Phillips County has a long and proud tradition of serving the community that dates back to 1930 when the museum opened to the public.

The museum offers an array of artifacts and artwork for the public, many of which are displayed in Victorian era cases once used in stores around Helena in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

Dioramas provide visual insight into the role Helena played in the Civil War and detail the Battle of Helena and its lasing legacy on the area.

The Helena Museum houses an extensive collection of Thomas Edison memorabilia and contains a wide array of Native American artifacts.

The museum also includes the historic former Helena Library building that was constructed in 1891. Today this building is awaiting renovation to transfer the former library into new exhibition and showcase rooms.
