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.
