The Murray City Museum celebrates the heritage of the Murray community by fostering appreciation for the city’s past, promoting understanding of local diversity, and forging connections between residents, past and present. The Museum documents, preserves, studies, and interprets the history of Murray, including early settlement, community growth, industrial prominence, and modern expansion through exhibits, collections, public programs and research.

The Murray City Museum is located in the south wing of the City Hall building (the old Arlington Elementary School), but also has exhibit space in display cases along the main hallway within the building. The museum is a steward of artifacts from Murray’s history.
