Welcome to Helen Arts & Heritage Center

Welcome to Helen Arts & Heritage Center, a local non-profit art gallery, pottery studio, history museum and art educational facility, located in the Alpine Bavarian Village of Helen, Georgia, rated as the 2nd Most Visited City Attraction in Georgia, welcoming over three million visitors each year. The organization takes much pride in serving area artists and others through art educational programs, annual gallery exhibits and competitions, marketing, publicity and stands as a pillar of the community in cultural outreach. The gallery serves many area artists through its sale of art and is within itself, a base location for artists desiring a quiet and relaxed place to master their skills and share interests and ideas with fellow working artisans.

The History & Heritage Museum is housed within the Arts Center and serves not only locals, but visitors from all over the world. The local history is rich and embedded deep here and it is our goal, as an organization whose membership consists of authorized historians, to do everything possible to carefully preserve the historic heritage and keep alive the valued past for our future generations.
