Want A Speaker?

Museum staff can visit your civic group, community club, or other organization to present programs on a variety of topics that relate to Arkansas Ozark history. Most programs are 30-60 minutes in length and are accompanied by a slide presentation. We can adjust our programs to fit your schedule. Programs are free of charge and need to be scheduled at least two weeks in advance. If you are interested in a topic not listed below, give us at least one month's notice and we'll be happy to create a program for you. For more information, email outreach coordinator Susan Young or call 479-750-8165.
