Since 1988, the Powers Museum has been serving Carthage, Missouri, as a local history museum with a variety of programming and rotating exhibits.

Powers Museum is CLOSED for winter season so staff, volunteers, and board can complete a major work project that will continue through late March.

2015 Schedule

Email will be monitored and all research/archival appointments must be made in advance during winter and are subject to staff/volunteer availability. If you are doing work for NHD projects, please be sure to note that information when emailing or calling.
