WELCOME TO POWERS MUSEUM ONLINE
Since 1988, the Powers Museum has been serving Carthage, Missouri, as a local history museum with programs and rotating annual exhibits from the post-Civil War period to the 20th century.
Until March 26, the museum is closed to the public while we conduct work projects and create a new exhibit for 2014. Please call or email for further information. Spring Season Hours will be Wednesday through Saturday 11 am to 4 pm. Main Gallery exhibit will be completed by April 19 so check back for details on events that day.
