Cotton Museum at the Memphis Cotton Exchange

Select Option
No Added Fees At Checkout


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. Engaging exhibits help visitors understand our city's place in time and explain how the art, history, and music that is so important to our culture evolved from the confluence of people that were originally gathered here around the cotton industry. The story of the south cannot be understood without understanding the story of cotton.

While most of the museum experience occurs in the large exchange room, be sure to save time for the education room. In it are interesting details of textile machines and the production of cotton into cloth. Watch and listen at the screens in the large room for lots of information is revealed in a short period of time.

Self guided tour of original building. Artifacts, testimonials, newspapers, film clips. Very interesting informative, kids educational area with hands on items. Plan some time for reading and watching, not a 1hr rush thru. Also have audio walking portion of outside that we unfortunately did not have time to complete.

About This Deal

Visit: The Cotton Museum at the Memphis Cotton Exchange, 65 Union Ave, Memphis, TN 38103-5196

Visitors will receive an introductory orientation by one of our docents before viewing the opening film in our history gallery. The main exhibit is located on the Historic trade floor of the Memphis Cotton Exchange where cotton traders once stood at the center of the global cotton economy. Highlights include original films, detailing specific aspects of the cotton industry, oral histories, and exciting temporary exhibits.

Our award winning education wing, "Exploration Hall", explores cotton production, sustainability in agriculture, how technology in the industry has changed since the 1940's.

Admission also includes self-guided audio tour of Cotton Row. Memphis is the largest spot-cotton market in the world and, for generations, the historic Cotton Row district that surrounds the museum was the center of the worldwide cotton trade. The tour highlights historic landmarks and gives a sense of the clamber and bustle that once surrounded cotton commerce in Memphis.
