What to know

Discover the role of Arkansas’s White River, with emphasis on the Lower White, as a vital transportation route for early settlers on the Arkansas frontier. Museum exhibits interpret the river’s influence on settlements during the steamboat era and the expansion of commerce from its roots in hunting and fishing into shelling, timber, agriculture, pearling, and button making. Life-sized figures of a steamboat captain, slave, schoolteacher, and land surveyor greet visitors, introducing themselves with dialog taken from oral histories and slave narratives for a truly interactive experience. Admission to the museum is free.
