Officially opened to the public in 1986, the Arkansas Museum of Natural Resources is situated in the midst of the historic Smackover oil field and one mile south of the oil rich town of Smackover. Although the museum represents all of Arkansas's natural resources, it is dedicated to the pioneers of south Arkansas's oil and brine industries.

Exploring the Frontier is back! Come dress up in frontier clothing and paddle down the river! Spin the wheel of fate to see what unforseen event could happen to you on your journey. You have to get yourself and all your supplies across a deep river, but you can only cross with 1,000 lbs. What do you take with you? Learn how many rotations of a wagon wheel make one mile and at the end of your journey sit around the campfire and talk about your adventures!
