The Crisp Museum collects in three thematic areas: archaeology, history, and fine art.
The museum displays a collection of prehistoric Native American artifacts of tribes that resided in the Southeast Missouri region hundreds and even thousands of years ago. Some artifacts in this collection are considered to be more than 15,000 years old.
The historical collection contains more recent historical pieces. Much of the collection is comprised of firearms, tools, and artifacts from midwestern river history.
