Owner description: The Delta Cultural Center Visitors Center is comprised of three interconnected buildings within one block of The Delta Cultural Center Depot. Delta Sounds serves as a permanent, state-of-the-art exhibit area dedicated to the music of the Arkansas Delta: Blues, Gospel, Country, Rockabilly, and other regional musical styles. Exhibit highlights include an operating radio studio, listening stations, a variety of artifacts and information on legendary musicians. As you enter the Visitors Center you find our central gallery. This gallery provides a space for traveling and changing exhibits related to a variety of Delta topics which may include art, music and history. Also within the Visitors Center you find a large exhibit space which hosts extended exhibits. These exhibits are staff developed and run for a 3-4 year term. Currently the Center is featuring "Songs From the Field" exhibit. The Museum Store provides a variety of books, locally made products, music & gifts. Sales of all merchandise go directly to the Delta Cultural Center. Merchandise is available on-site, by phone, and soon on-line. Due to limited space, large groups may divide up to allow for shopping.
Useful Information: Activities for older children, Wheelchair access

Another great museum of Mississippi delta/blues history, including the studio of the longest running radio show, King Biscuit Time, that broadcasts live from the centre every day. If you are interesting enough, the DJ will interview you on air.
