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.


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.

We are a design and fabrication shop that encourages play in museums, organizations and brands so they may spread the roots of their mission. Play is a powerful tool because it tests assumptions, makes connections and establishes a positive emotional memory to concepts. Incorporating play (interactives) in your project can actually boost diversity, loyalty and engagement which will ultimately strengthen your mission.
