Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum

Explore the Rich Past of The Ozarks

Top of the Rock

Centuries before Europeans ever touched these shores, unimaginable beasts roamed this land. Years later, cave dwellers, then Native Americans made their home in these Ozark hills. The newly expanded Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum will bring you face-to-face with prehistoric creatures and astounding collections of Native American artifacts and artwork as well as expansive galleries showcasing the American West and Civil War.
