“ancient history!”

Hampson Archeological Museum State Park in northeast Arkansas exhibits a nationally renowned collection from the Nodena site, a 15-acre palisaded village that once thrived on a meander bend of the Mississippi River in what is today Mississippi County. Hampson Archeological Museum interprets the lifestyles of this farming-based civilization that lived there from A.D. 1400 to 1650. Artifacts and exhibits share the story of this early aboriginal population of farmers who cultivated crops and supplemented their food resources with hunting native game while developing its art, religion and political structure along with a thriving trading network.This remarkable collection owes its preservation to the late Dr. James K. Hampson and his family. Guided tours are available:  Our staff welcomes the opportunity to lead you on a guided tour any day the museum is open and staff are available. Scheduled times are 10:00 a.m.-10:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.-2:30 p.m.; however, guided tours for drop-in visitors can be made available most of the time. You'll see the collection on display and hear stories highlighting the life of the Late Mississippian Period Native Americans who inhabited what is now Mississippi County, Arkansas, from 1400-1650 A.D. Check the park's online calendar of events for special scheduled programs.
