Archival materials represent the bulk of the Hot Springs National Park museum collection--more than 500,000 items--and support the park's administration, resource management, interpretation, and research programs. These items are made accessible to the public and visiting researchers in appropriate ways.

The archives include bathhouse business records, park administrative records, photographic collections, oral histories, pamphlets, advertisements for the hot springs and the baths, bath tickets, bathhouse stationery, books on the human and natural history of Hot Springs National Park, maps, blueprints, and other similar materials.
