Explore the unique shops of Berryville where a stroll around the Public Square invites discovery.

Get a bang out of it

Just to the east of Eureka Springs, the city of Berryville offers something unique for visitors.

The Saunders Museum, located off the Public Square, houses an amazing collection of historic guns and other items from the frontier period.

Dominating the Square is the Heritage Center Museum, with exhibits dedicated to the city's history. The third story preserves the courtroom, which dates back to the 1880s.

Antique shops and a variety of restaurants surround the Square.

For those who need a little workout after being trapped in the car too long, the beautiful new Community Center offers day passes for visitors, who can use exercise equipment, an indoor track, or swim some laps in the indoor pool.

An information center on the east side of town has lots more information on the area, and a city-operated RV Park is located behind the welcome center.

And don't miss Cosmic Cavern, just a few miles north of Berryville. The cave tour will delight the entire family.
