Welcome to Arkansas State University!

Museum Day of Giving

Donate to Arkansas State University Museum


APRIL 11, 2023


A-State Museum is unique in that it serves local communities as the only nature/culture museum in Jonesboro with significant STEM and STEAM programming! This year, activities will culminate in the celebration of our 90th anniversary as a first-rate community-empowering museum. As such, the American Alliance of Museums has accredited our operations for the past 50 years. Your support ensures a great investment in ongoing high-impact museum edutainment offering thought-provoking exhibitions that tell the stories of all Northeast Arkansans. On behalf of A-State Museum we invite you to make a gift to us on or before April 11, 2023, by going to AStateAlumni.org/Give2AState. Your gift, no matter the size will make a difference for all our visitors. Let’s make a difference together! Thank you!



Mask Policy

(updated 2/17/2022)

While we are not requiring masks in the Main Gallery, due to room size, masks are highly recommended for the Tinkering Studio, the Blue Block Play Room, Drawing Room, and Reading Castle.

Thank you. Museum Management

Museum Logo

Arkansas State University Museum serves the academic mission of the university and provides quality programming that broadens the perceptions and aspirations of people in Northeast Arkansas and the Northern Mississippi River Delta region. Within this mission, the Museum endeavors to connect people with their history, foster education as a family value, promote diversity, engage minds in progressive thinking, and enhance the sense of community among all audiences. 

Quality exhibits that broaden perceptions

A-State Museum offers exhibits connected to State-mandated curriculum, hands-on gallery activities that bolster STEM-learning, tours, and suitcase exhibits that can be checked out—all for free!  The Museum’s Tinkering Studio (Saturday10:00–5:00) inspires creativity and inventiveness. Our Birthday Parties are matchless and competitively priced. From learning amazing things about historic Northeast Arkansas to shopping for unique items in the Gift Shop, there is something for everyone at A-State Museum.
