We need your help to fulfill our mission!
DGM is one of only 6 venues in Arkansas selected to host the Smithsonian Institution's traveling exhibit, "Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America." We're developing activities, events, and a regional sports exhibit to compliment the traveling exhibit. For more information or to get involved, call 870-824-2346 or email our director at email@example.com. "Hometown Teams: How Sports Shape America" is made possible by the Arkansas Humanities Council and National Endowment for the Humanities. The exhibit is part of Museum on Main Street, a collaboration between the Smithsonian Institution and State Humanities Councils nationwide. Support for Museum on Main Street has been provided by the United States Congress.
Housed in the historic Kress Building in the heart of Blytheville’s Commercial Historic District, this regional heritage museum illustrates broad historical themes in one of the world’s most fertile agricultural regions. Planned exhibitions focus on the development of cotton, soybean, and rice agriculture, along with interrelated topics such as the timber industry and swamp drainage; river, rail, & highway transportation; earthquakes, flooding, and flood control; prehistoric Native American culture; and the regional impact of the Air Force base and steel industry.

Dr. Claudine Payne passed away on Friday, December 13, 2013. She was vice chair of the Delta Gateway Museum Commission and president of the DGM Association Board of Directors. Claudine was passionate about Delta Gateway Museum! She devoted a great deal of her time, expertise, and personal resources to turning this dream into reality. We honor her memory by continuing to raise funds and march forward with our plans for permanent, professional exhibits.
