It's been said that downtown Memphis is the place where the Mississippi Delta begins. Whether you are a visitor or native Memphian, the Cotton Museum is a great place to start an exploration of the Delta's history and our dynamic urban culture. Our Museum tells the story of how Memphis became all that it is.
