As an educational outreach, The Museum of the Mississippi Delta provides a variety of tour options. Select the one that best suits your interests or contact us for more information.
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.

It will soon be time to register for our Summer Discovery educational program!
Summer Discovery is the name for our popular summer educational program that allows students ages 5-12 to take classes on a wide variety of topics. Some of the classes include dinosaurs, magnets, sound, watercolor, papermaking, ancient Egypt, birds, and forensic science, among many others. Most of the classes are three hours long, though some may be two-day classes. The classes are so anticipated that many of them fill up within minutes of opening registration. Museum members are allowed early registration and reduced class fees. Discovery Classes are also occasionally offered throughout the rest of the year during school breaks.
REGISTRATION MEMBERS: May 13 &14, 8:30 am-5:30 pm using the lottery system. (Parents will draw a number to indicate their position in line to be added to classes.) NON-MEMBERS: May 15-17, 8:30 am-5:30 pm on a first-come first-serve basis
