Tulip Time


PHSM is currently closed for the season. We will re-open in March 2020 with new exhibits and programs for you to enjoy!


Business hours are 9am - 5pm. Due to reduced staff, we recommend calling before you stop by.

In 2020, the Boyhood Home of Wyatt Earp will be closed as part of a $2.5 million renovation and restoration campaign. The Scholte House will be closed until Tulip Time 2020. But don't worry, there's still plenty to see and do in the meantime!

You're invited to spend a day with the Dutch when you visit the Pella Historical Society and Museums. From displays of Pella's earliest years to unique gifts in our museum shop, you'll truly experience a touch of Holland on the prairie.


The story of 800 immigrants who founded a town on the prairie, the beauty of the costumes from their native Netherlands, the boyhood home of Wyatt Earp, thousands of tulips in an explosion of color, the tallest working windmill in the United States... You'll find it all here!

We promise that your day will be erg uitstekend!

What's New at Pella Historical?

Pella Historical is doing some pre-spring cleaning! It's time to tidy up the nooks and crannies of our buildings, including the newly acquired Wells Fargo building. We will have everything from antiques to office furniture for sale.
