The Museum of Native American History was first established in a downtown Bentonville location in 2006 as the Museum of Native American Artifacts. The collection quickly outgrew the space and MONAH opened its current doors in June of 2008.
Founded by David Bogle, who was born and raised in Bentonville and is a registered member of the Cherokee Nation, the museum houses over 10,000 pieces of Native American artifacts. The museum features Bogle’s private collection, along with a number of collections donated and on loan to the museum for display.
