Welcome to The Museum of the Mississippi Delta. Since our museum is about so much more than cotton, our Board of Directors made the decision to change our name from 'Cottonlandia Museum' to 'The Museum of the Mississippi Delta'! Mississippi artwork combines with history - local, military, and agricultural - along with an immense collection of Native American artifacts to create a museum that has something for everyone to enjoy. This is where your discovery of the Delta begins.

"Seawright and Garrard: A Native Homecoming" will be on display through July 31, 2015.
