Description

Housed in the historic Kress building in downtown Blytheville, Arkansas, Delta Gateway Museum collects, stores, maintains, and regularly exhibits historical and cultural objects, artifacts, photographs, works of art, printed materials, and audio-visual materials that relate to and emphasize the history, heritage, and culture of NE Arkansas, SE Missouri, and the Mississippi River Delta.

Mission

The mission of Delta Gateway Museum is to tell the story of Blytheville and the surrounding area by interpreting the land and its impact on the people.

Educational Programs

We offer hands-on exhibits for kids and a variety of temporary exhibits for public benefit and enjoyment (see the drop down menu under the Exhibits heading). We offer group tours and special events on a regular basis to raise money, public awareness, and to build support for museum development.
