Arkansas Post Museum

5530 Highway 165 South
Gillett, AR 72055


Explore this complex of five exhibit buildings and learn about life on, and the history of, Arkansas's Grand Prairie and Delta from 1877 to modern times.

The Main House serves as the entrance to the complex, and visitor information, a gift shop, an audiovisual room, and programming are provided here. The Summer Kitchen showcases early cookware and utensils. The Peterson Building interprets life on the southern end of the Grand Prairie and the Delta through exhibits that include military memorabilia, agricultural instruments, a general store, and a large collection of toys from the 1920s and 1930s. 

Two buildings on the museum grounds are original to the Grand Prairie. The 1877 Refeld-Hinman Loghouse, a dog-trot cabin furnished in the style of the 1800s, is an example of how houses were built on the prairie and throughout the Delta. The 1933 Carnes-Bonner Playhouse, a miniature built-to-scale version of the Carnes' family home, displays children's furnishings, accessories, and toys.
