“crossroads of Delta history & art”

The Museum of the Mississippi Delta is at the crossroads of Delta history and art. Our extensive collection includes artifacts related to agriculture, Native America, regional military history and one of the Delta's most extensive collections of regional art.The Museum of the Mississippi Delta focuses on the five "A's": art, archaeology, agriculture, antiques and animals. The Museum has a large collection of Mississippi art work, made possible by the state-wide biannual Museum of the Mississippi Delta's Fine Arts Competition. Our archaeology collection, on loan from the L.B. Jones Trust, is immense, and includes the largest collection of Native American trade beads in the southern United States.The Museum also boasts a room dedicated to the agricultural history of our region, and includes artifacts such as plows, fertilizer spreaders, mule hames, and blacksmith tools. Artifacts and furniture from Malmaison, the home of Greenwood Leflore, and numerous military history items are also highlights of the antique collection. A life-size, walk-through diorama of a Mississippi swamp (complete with sound effects), coupled with a hands-on natural science room are always favorites of younger visitors.The Leflore County Military History exhibit focuses on the effect of various wars on Greenwood and its citizens and exhibits uniforms, veteran lists, victory posters, and artifacts from the wars and the homefront. There is a Civil War-era cannon and a model of the battle of nearby Fort Pemberton.Leflore County's Historical Time Line: This exhibit looks at significant events in Greenwood and Leflore County's history through a time-line format, augmented with artifacts, photographs and documents from the Museum's collections.
