The Cotton Museum at the Memphis Cotton Exchange will not only introduce you to the history of cotton and its many uses, but also tells how cotton is intertwined in the history of Memphis and its people.
Memphis was founded in 1812 on the Mississippi River’s fourth Chickasaw Bluff as a shipping port for both cotton and the African slaves whose hard labor was the foundation of the southern economy. ~ Memphis Cotton Exchange
Artifacts and exhibits will take us back into time when cotton was king and we will learn about its impact on Memphis and the world. Cotton created many opportunities for people, which drew them to the area. It could be said that cotton played a significant role in the foundation of the Memphis blues, art, culture and more. Along with hands-on displays, there will be a guided tour and permanent exhibits. See the museum at a glance, the collections and Exploration Hall.
