After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we were excited to visit the Cotton Exchange Museum. We were a little disappointed when, after paying the $10 entrance fee, we discovered it consisted of just one room.
There were a number of videos that visitors can watch as well as some displays. As a history teacher, I was disappointed to find several inaccurate portrayals of historical information.
The museum and building certainly provided an interesting glimpse into something that was such a big part of Memphis history, but after about 45 minutes, we had seen everything it had to offer. If you only have a short amount of time, this might be for you, but there are other museums in Memphis charging similar fees with much more extensive and compelling exhibits.
I love museums (big and small), but this one seemed a bit overpriced for what it provided.
