WELCOME to Arkansas Post Museum
Explore this complex of five exhibit buildings
and learn about life on, and the history of,
Arkansas's Grand Prairie and Delta. The Main House
contains an audiovisual room and gift shop.
Summer Kitchen showcases domestic tools and kitchen
instruments of old. The Peterson Building interprets
life on the southern end of the Grand Prairie and
the Delta through exhibits and artifacts on display.
Two buildings on the museum grounds are original to
the Grand Prairie. The 1877 Refeld-Hinman Loghouse
is an example of how houses were built on the
prairie and throughout the Delta.
Carnes-Bonner Playhouse, a miniature built-to-scale
version of the Carnes' family home, displays
children's furnishings, accessories, and toys.
The museum is located six miles south of Gillett
on U.S. 165 at the junction of Ark. 169.
